||||| THE BANTRY BOAT of ST BRENDEN: A curragh or skin covered boat, with the helmsman urging on four oarsmen as they strike heavenwards amid a sea of crosses. (Note the boat is vertical on the staff of the original Kilnaruane Pillar, standing in a field above Bantry Bay. West Cork.)

||||| 6th CENTURY VOYAGE? Did St Brendan discover America before Columbus? Many believe the Celtic Cross was a navigational device. (Similar to a sextant, it will measure the angle of the stars and identify both latitude and longtitude. This amazingly accurate depiction of oarsmen dates from the early Christian period. It may celebrate St Brendan who in the 6th Century with his crew of four discovered America some 1,000 years before Columbus.

Mythically, it depicts the journey of Everyman, sailing across unchartered perilous seas to reach heaven or hell. Or, the Church ferrying its flock to heaven through seas of adversity.

(this original design, by the Irish artist Kathleen Smyth, was the first carved replica of the Bantry Boat, 1965.

||||| HAND CAST IN KINSALE IRELAND BY WILD GOOSE STUDIOS: Each of these beautiful reminders of our faith is hand cast in bronze and in iron. A shell is formed in metal then filled with a resin. Each piece is then polished, leaving a deep rich patina. This remarkale technique creates a plaque that is not only beautiful but lighter in weight as if solid, would be very heavy an very expensive.
