For many years we have been fascinated with the wonderful work on the pages of the Book of Kells but here we have the Cross of Kells with it's own wonderful work. We have been intrigued by the symbolism on paintings and sculptures in many countries and here is a fine stone Celtic cross with a great array of features. Those at the base would be a good place to start?
Morning Mary had a few minutes to spare in Dublin yesterday and called in to the NLI Photographic Archive in Temple Bar. There the exhibition "PEOPLE AND PLACES" is on display and well worth a visit!
