Explanation on back reads:

The Wild Goose Studio
Lough Derg Holy Water Font

A site of pilgrimage since medieval times, Lough Derg is associated with many Irish Saints, including Patrick & Brigid, whose cross from an ancient carved stone on the island is incised on this font.  Water forms an important part of the pilgrimage which involves a cross by boat.     Designed by Kathleen Smyth

Q. How are the Studio's designs made?
A. All Wild Goose's work is handmade by skilled craft-workers using a cold cast method. Each piece has a shell of pure cast iron or bronze backed by a resin and ceramic core. Any variations in finish are part of its appeal.
