"Kildalton Cross"

Dimensions; 36" x 17"
Materials; Cherry 

This carving is a downscaled version of the original which is in the western islands of the coast of Scotland.  It was a great undertaking to make a drawing of it with all the erosion of the original.  The figure in the left arm is Cane murder of Able, and in the right, Abraham's attempted sacrifice of Isaac.  In the top are two angel's, and David fighting the lion, a ram above the lion and two birds eating berries on the bottom.  The bottom has the Virgin and the child with two angels making an arch over her head with their wings.  An amazing collection of symbols.
