The merging of cultures characterizing the ancient Celtic Church is superbly captured and represented in the Celtic Cross. Here the sun wheel, a symbol of the eternal cycle of life, death, and rebirth, is captured by joined by the Christian Cross symbol of the risen Christ. It is believed that Saint Patrick combined the symbol of Christianity, a cross, with the symbol of the sun to give pagan followers the idea of the importance of the cross by linking it with the idea of the life-giving properties of the sun. To this day, at numerous monastic sites throughout Ireland, these exquisitely carved monuments bear silent testimony to the deep faith of the bold artistry of their creators.
