the Celtic Letters

 

small Skinnet Cross

The Skinnet Cross design was taken from an 8th Century Pictish cross-slab that was found in Thurso, in the far north-east of Scotland. The Cross-slab is now in the Thurso Museum. These large stone slabs always have carving on both sides and are unique to Scotland. The knotwork on the face of the cross symbolizes the eternal theme; the Alpha and Omega - beginning and end in the eternal cycle. This is the very essence of the Celtic never-ending knotwork designs.
At the bottom, there is a very old Pictish symbol called the rams-horn and is a variation of the spiral.

the original cross slab

The inspiration for the small Skinnet Cross comes from a 7th-9th century Pictish cross slab discovered in 1861 at St. Thomas Chapel, Halkirk, in the county of Caithness, Scotland.

The original is now housed in the Thurso Museum, Thurso, Scotland.
