Welsh Pillar Cross

Welsh Pillar Cross

This unparalleled 10th century Celtic cross is located at Cairn Engeli, "the Mount of Angels", at the church founded by St. Brynach, a 6th century saint who came to Wales from Ireland.  On a clear day, one can actually see Ireland from the mountain's summit across the sea.  It is constructed in the wheel cross on a shaft style common in Welsh Celtic monuments and includes Celtic solar designs such as the wheel itself and the turning wheel design, thought to symbolize the movement of the sun and of energy.  There are also labyrinth and Celtic knotwork patterns throughout the cross.  The cross itself seems to suggest a devoutly praying robed figure in an abstract way.
