Bressay Cross Wall Plaque
The design used on this plaque is taken from a Celtic stone found on
the tiny island of Bressay in the Shetland Islands off the North coast
of Scotland. This wall plaque features an unusual form of Celtic Cross
contained within a circle, and is taken from the front face of the
original stone. The knotwork designs decorating this wall plaque may
have had a symbolic meaning for the ancient Celts, or they may have
been purely decorative, unfortunately, like much of Scotland's Celtic
past any meaning is lost in the mists of time.
Due to the way they are made, each plaque is uniquely coloured. Each comes strung ready to hang, with descriptive notes describing the original stone.
