This Celtic Cross Box is a great addition to your home or office décor. The Celtic cross features a ring that emerged in Ireland and Britain in the early Middle Ages. The type of ringed cross became widespread through its use on the stone high crosses that were erected across the islands, mainly in regions evangelized by Irish missionaries. A variety of crosses bear inscriptions in ogham, an early medieval Irish alphabet. Popular Ireland legend says that the Christian cross was presented by Saint Patrick. It has often been claimed that Patrick combined the symbol of Christianity with the sun cross to give pagan followers an idea of importance of the cross. This beautifully hand painted Celtic Cross Box in hand painted in grey tones. It features the same design on two sides. This box would make a great gift for a collector of Celtic design!
