Green Celtic Cross Throw Pillow
The Celtic cross is a symbol of culture and faith. The true origins are unknown but there are many legends.
A Christian legend says that the first Celtic cross was formed by St Patrick while bringing Christianity to the Druids. The Druids used to worship a large circular stone. St Patrick, on seeing the significance of this stone, drew a large cross through the middle of it in order to bless it.
From this act, the two cultures combined to form the Celtic cross. The cross represents Christianity and the circle is the Celtic representation of eternity, no beginning and no end.
One legend suggests that the cross represents the four directions of north, south, east and west or the four elements; earth, fire, air and water.
This suggests the symbol of the cross predates Christianity and indeed it does appear in many ancient cultures. Carvings of crosses can even be found in caves dating back to the Stone Age.
Printed on both sides, this premium linen-like pillow with a shape-retaining insert will add a splash of colour to your home while celebrating your Celtic roots.
