Pectoral High Cross of Ireland
4" pectoral cross is die struck. Silver plated over solid cast bronze. Comes on a 30" substantial silver plated steel chain.
The cross tells of beginnings: Adam and Eve and the Wise Men. Offering and praise are expressed in the scenes on the arms: Abraham's Sacrifice and David's song. Daniel between lions - a type of Christ - directly below the central figure of the redeeming judge amid the four living ones. 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.
Gift Boxed. Card with explanation of the design included.
