St. Brendan’s Cross. This beautiful repoussé copper artwork of “St. Brendan’s Cross”. 

This is a traditional Celtic- handcrafted copper, representing a continuation of a long tradition of Celtic arts, which began with my ancient forefathers, “The Ancient Celts”, crafted with Celtic magic in an ancient, honoured tradition

St. Brendan’s cross is a Celtic cross that is significantly associated with the monk. All Celtic crosses have four arms with a circle surrounding them. There are many interpretations of the symbolism of each element. St. Brendan’s cross was shown on the sails of the boats. Several scholars have speculated that St. Brendan invented and then used it as a crude navigational tool shaped like the cross. The Celtic cross associated with the monk took root in this sailing tool. Another, more stylised, Celtic cross is also associated with St. Brendan. This cross is a circle of 4 dolphins whose tails meet in the centre to form a cross. This version of St. Brendan’s Cross has inspired many modern jewellery makers to fashion items such as earrings and pendants based on the design. St. Brendan was an Irish monk living in western Ireland from 484 to 577 AD. He is the patron saint of boatmen, mariners, sailors, travellers &whales. St. Brendan was a charismatic leader known for his ocean voyages through northwest Europe. He helped in spreading the Christian faith by founding several monasteries across Europe.

. I am trying to keep the art of copper repousse alive. Copper repousse is among the skills that are all but a lost, forgotten art. 
Just as in nature, there will be flaws. I tend to be drawn to the ‘wear,’ finding it infinitely more beautiful and exciting than the flawless perfection of manufactured pieces. 
The copper art is 210 x 297 mm; the Frame size is 275mm x 375 mm.

This copper art is crafted to order; The copper artwork can be crafted in different sizes if the client desires.
