Crosses are important Christian symbols. This Celtic Wall cross would make a great accessory in an Irish home where religious values are upheld. This cross is made from solid brass and finished with satin nickel silver. It is an exquisite piece because it is the only cross from the Robert Emmet Company that has a satin nickel silver finish. The tradition of hanging crosses on the wall has been around for centuries because it is thought that it protects one's house and because it reminds everyone in the family of their relationship with God. The Celtic Cross, which is a symbol of Irish Christianity, is also a reminder of one's heritage.
