This standing Celtic cross is a pewter replica of the 9th century monument that is located at the Clonmacnoise Monastery in County Offaly, Ireland; it is also known as the Cross of the Scriptures.
This 4 meter tall sandstone cross is one of the most skillfully executed of the surviving high crosses in Ireland, and of particular interest for its surviving inscription, which asks a prayer for Flann Sinna, King of Ireland, and Abbot Colman, who commissioned the cross. Both men were also responsible for the building of the Cathedral. The Clonmacnoise cross was carved from Clare sandstone c.900. The surface of the cross is divided into panels, showing scenes including the Crucifixion, the Last Judgment, and Christ in the Tomb.
