Description

St Brigid’s Cross

Usually woven from reeds, the St Brigid’s Cross is widely thought to protect the home. This wall hanging also comes with a blessing. There are many folk traditions associated with St Brigid, which are still celebrated in rural Ireland. From a design by Adam Grabski, hand finished in pure bronze, this beautiful carving comes in a presentation box, measuring 9 x 6 inches (22 x 15cm).

Artists Brian Scott-McCarthy and Kathleen Smyth founded the Wild Goose Studio in 1970.  Together with other leading Irish artists, they created a unique range of artefacts that take their inspiration from their rich cultural heritage and the contemporary world.  Each piece starts with an inspiring thought, an image or an emotion and is given a physical form by their craftspeople.
