Antique silver plated High Celtic Cross of Ireland 2 1/2 inches tall on a 24 inch antique silver plated chain. The cross tells of beginnings: Adam and Eve(Gn) and the Wise Men (Mt 2). Offering and praise are expressed in the scenes on the arms: Abraham's Sacrifice (Gn 2) and David's song (Psalm). Daniel between lions (Dn 14) - a type of Christ - directly below the central figure of the redeeming judge amid the four living ones. (Rv 21) At the top, the hermits, Paul and Anthony, gather in the Eucharist, a sign of the church under the Pentecostal dove. On the base, the Eucharistic story of loaves and fishes (Mt 14).

I was looking for something to acknowledge my (mostly) Irish roots and a cross. This is a beautiful piece. I love it.
