  • Description

Standing Celtic cross is an Irish turf design that is enhanced with hand carved knot-work on both sides.

For centuries turf or peat has been an integral part of Irish history and culture and it is used as a source of fuel to this day. Turf is harvested from areas that are known as the boglands; these areas of Ireland possess a rugged beauty that has inspired generations. Turf is a wonderful and unique product of the land that has evolved into a fine medium of artistic expression that enriches the links of our Celtic heritage and cultural identity.

This standing Celtic cross is carved from Irish peat and features a design that is similar to the Muiredach High Cross located at Monasterboice, Ireland that includes Celtic knots. The double sided turf cross measures 3 1/8" wide x 6 5/8" tall with a width of 1 3/4" wide at the base and it is gift boxed with Celtic knot, Celtic cross and Irish turf history cards, complements of The Irish Gift House.
