Celtic High Cross explanation reads:
The true meaning behind Celtic designs is lost in the mists of history, little real documentary evidence exists today. Whatever the thoughts in the minds of those artists long ago we encourage you to enjoy their beauty and dream your own thoughts.
According to a popular legend, St Patrick himself was responsible for the design of the Celtic High Cross when he combined a Christian cross with the sun, one of the most important and ancient Celtic symbols. Archaeological discoveries however suggest the design of the cross predates St Patrick's arrival.
But it was, nonetheless, Christian monks who were responsible for most of the 300 or so crosses that remain standing in Ireland today.
