With the abeyance of the ancient Druids, so too vanished centuries of accumulated oral wisdom about the Celtic way of thinking, about their faith and their symbolic perception of the Celtic cross meaning. What remains of Celtic understanding comes to us from Roman writings (which, are biased at best). We can also turn to Christian monks for understanding about the faith of the Celts as it was their charge to transcribe much of their mythology. Even here we see religious projection and grand liberties of supposition about how the Celts exhibited their faith.
The symbolism of the Celtic cross (especially the equal-armed cross in which each protrusion is equidistant from the center) is indicative of the human desire to know and experience the unfolding mystery of life. We could say that mystery can unfold in a 4-fold pattern in which the arms of the cross offer four ways to ascension, an invitation to objectively know. The symbolic stations of the Celtic cross are: self, nature, wisdom, god/goddess.
The cross is also a symbol representing the meeting place of the Divine energies. At the center of the cross-section is the energetic touchstone where a concentration of cosmic power resides.
This handmade pendant is made of copper and has intricate Celtic knots inside the cross. The circle brings together its symbolic stations and unites us with nature, wisdom and god. By keeping and wearing a Celtic cross we show the universe that we continue to desire for knowledge about the mysteries of life, and that we are open to receive guidance and wisdom from the Divine.
The measurements are as follows:
The piece will be sent with an adjustable black cotton strap but it also looks great with a metal chain.
