Irish Wedding Cross - Celtic Christian Cross wood burned with Irish Love Knot, Matrimonial Panel, Claddagh and Shamrock

MEANING: This Celtic Cross is covered with pyrography symbolic of Love and Marriage for those enchanted with Irish heritage and meanings. 

Matrimonial Panel - This pattern is taken from a Celtic wedding band and expressed in a single solid piece of wood to convey the meaning of endless devotion.

The Claddagh -  “With these hands I give you my heart, and I crown it with my Love.” The Claddagh stands for Friendship, Love and Loyalty and the Eternal Braid ensures that it will last forever.

A Traditional Irish symbol, most often found in the form of a ring, usually engagement or wedding ring.  The hands represent friendship, the heart - love, and the crown - loyalty. Yet, another meaning can be, "Let love and friendship reign forever".

Shamrock - The three-leafed shamrock is mainly an Irish Christian symbol of the Holy Trinity. Legend has it, St. Patrick used the shamrock to illustrate the Doctrine of the Trinity. When you look at the Shamrock there is the stem and then three leaves. God is the stem and then on each of the leaves is the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit.

Wood carvings of the Irish Love Knot, Matrimonial Panel, and Claddagh are available in the Celtic Love Knot category. 

THE CARVING:

Our carvings are single pieces of western red cedar, designed and carved to be wall hangings.  Each piece is finished with a blend of clear oils that brings out the natural color of the wood.  For more information on the process of creation, please see my profile.

SIZE: The cross is approximately 13 inches high by 8 inches wide.

 

The pictures you see here are stock photos. What you get will depend on what we have in stock. If there are no others in stock, the time to shipping will be increased. If you desire and request something (for example) dark, we will pull the darkest board we have, but it will not necessarily be as dark as (for example) walnut would be. Western Red Cedar is the species from which roofing shingles, decks, and gazeboes have traditionally been made. It is resistant to mold, moisture, and insects. The oiling process also helps to block out damaging UV rays of the sun, so our carvings can be hung outdoors. Please be aware, that even with the oiling, the carving will eventually gray out, as any cedar will, if it is placed in direct sunlight.

 SIZE OF THE CARVINGS: The stock carvings are limited by the size of the board that starts the carving process. As the initial piece is 1 in. x 12 in., (in reality 3/4 in. x 11-3/4 in.) one side of the carving will be no greater then approximately 11-1/2 in.
