 The Calf of Man is a small island adjacent to the Isle of Man, just off the coast of England. This cross is a replica of an altar fragment found in 1770. The original was carved by Celtic artists ca. 800 AD. The fineness and delicacy of their carving is unequaled for the period. The design is typically Byzantine and illustrates the influence of the eastern Mediterranean Church on the Celtic Church.

Dimensions: 1 3/4" x 1 1/2"
