The Celtic cross has been widely used by ancient cultures long before the arrival of Christianity. Its four arms of equal length were perfect for denoting the four elements, the four directions of the compass, the four seasons, and the four aspects of mankind (mind, body, heart and soul). Many theories have arisen as to why the circle around the cross was added. One Irish legend tells how St. Patrick created the first Celtic cross by drawing a circle over a Latin cross to incorporate a pagan moon goddess symbol in hopes that this imagery might attract Pagan worshippers to Christ.
The light- to mid-weight material used as the foundation of this tapestry has endless versatility. Use your Celtic cross tapestry as a bedspread, a tablecloth, a furniture cover, beach blanket, a room divider, and, of course, a tapestry to be hung on a wall or from a ceiling.
