DescriptionCast by hand in the Wild Goose Studio, Kinsale, County Cork, Ireland. This Irish Celtic Love Cross has an outer shell of pure bronze with an inner core of cast resin material for stability. Each Wild Goose piece is made entirely by hand, with no two being exactly alike.
Since ancient times, bronze has been a highly prized metal for the making of tools, jewelry and statues. It is an alloy of copper, which was first mined in Ireland over 4000 years ago. Left to weather, it will acquire a green patina; polished it will shine like gold.
The design is based on the writings of Teilhard de Chardin, priest, scientist and prophet.
KEYS TO THE CELTIC KNOTWORK ON THE CROSS:
Union differentiates -- Through seeking union with another I am challenged to find myself.
Differentiation unites -- As I find the real me I am better able to unite with the beloved.
Love -- alone is capable of uniting human beings in such a way as to complete and fulfill them, for it takes them and joins them by what is deepest in themselves.
Love -- needs dreams, wonder, exploration, and imaginaton. By the love of man and woman a thread is woven that will reach to the very heart of the universe.
