WP14 Aberlemno Seahorses Wall Plaque
The design used on this wall plaque is taken from The Aberlemno Churchyard Cross. The front face of the original stone features a beautiful Celtic Cross decorated with intricate knotwork patterns, and has a complex spiral design at the centre. Surrounding the cross are zoomorphic panels, and these seahorses are from this part of the stone. What these seahorses originally represented is lost . Unfortunately the full meanings of Celtic stones are lost and we are left to wonder at the artistic skills of these so-called ‘savages’.
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.
