South Cross at Castledermot - Co. Kildare, Ireland
(You save $12.15)
In Castledemot, among the ruins of two medieval friaries, a parish church gong back to the twelfth century, and a Round Tower, also was an ancient monastery, which was founded in 812. The two crosses found there were probably erected in the ninth century. The south cross is 12 feet tall. The east face is covered with interwoven bands and fields of continuous round and angled spirals. The spiral is a shape that is always in motion. It links that which is outside with the center, and it links a center with the universe outside. The spiral also represents the seasons, of life and death, of becoming and passing away. The maze pattern on the crosshead and shaft are called key patterns. These patterns represent the twists and turns of life's journey.
