Oldest of the great Irish High Crosses, dating from the 7th century, this stands over 3 metres tall in Carndonagh, Co. Donegal. At the bottom of the carving there are three pilgrims, in the middle is Christ with the four Evangelists, and at the top there is a beautiful interlacing pattern, which is often used in Celtic art to suggest the ineffable.
Christ be with me, Christ be before me, Christ be behind me, Christ be within me. From St Patrick’s Prayer.

Wild Goose Studio was founded in 1970 by two talented artists Brian Scott-McCarthy and Kathleen Smith. In teaming up with other incredible Irish talents, they have made stunning works of art inspired by Ireland’s rich culture. Their process involves creating the physical form of an idea, feeling, or image. An artist then carves it and sculpts his or her artwork, which is reproduced with a mold so that each piece holds all of the artistry and detail of the original piece. After setting the bronze or cast iron piece with a cold cast, it is polished to perfection. Wild Goose artists use their work to reflect Celtic history, which is characterized by beautiful carvings and legendary tales, along with their own unique perspectives.
