Manufacturer: Belleek China
Named after the first saint thought to have been born in Ireland (some time during the 5th century), Belleek Pottery’s St. Kieran’s Celtic Cross Ornament combines pre-Christian design elements with the religious iconography of the Celtic cross, a uniquely Irish contribution to Catholic art. Our incredible Celtic Cross Ornament is an ideal gift for any occasion, and comes with a green cord attached for ease of hanging and can be displayed proudly anywhere in the home. The ornament itself measures about 3.5” wide and is 5” tall. Its soft natural color accented with the green cord and shamrocks makes it great for placing in any room, regardless of the space’s current color scheme, and will add a beautiful, subtle finishing touch to the area you choose to place it.
The Celtic knot design dates back millennia, and symbolizes eternity as well as the interconnectivity of the universe. The design can be found throughout Celtic history and culture in various paintings, carvings, and other forms of art dating back to ancient pagan times. For many generations, the Celtic knot served as a symbol of interconnectedness between the earth, life, and the universe. After the arrival of St. Patrick in 431 AD, the Celtic knot evolved into a symbol representing the interconnectedness of all creation, thus taking its place in the center of the most important symbol in Christianity itself. Our cross features the same Celtic knot that can be seen on church architecture, headstones, and old illuminated manuscripts, and adding this ornament to your home will give it a historical and cultural connection to Ireland that is truly unique.
The shamrock design is hand painted and reflects yet another of Ireland’s most famous saints, St. Patrick, who used the three leaves connected to a single stem to represent the holy trinity. Unlike the Celtic knot, the shamrock was not a prolific symbol in Ireland predating St. Patrick, but it obviously has since become one of the country’s most iconic and prolific symbols of Irish culture and heritage to date. Today, many Irish men still wear shamrocks in their caps or jacket.
