Intricate Celtic Cross - Ireland: 'Celtic or Irish High Crosses are based on three design types: ancient Iron Age Celtic culture based crosses, scripture based or bible based crosses or a combination of these two (only a few of these in existence). These Irish High Crosses were a religious education tool and many were painted in bright colors to attract people's attention.' (Celts, Celtic, history)
