The detail on this double sided cross is excellent and is true to the original 8th century high standing cross in the Iona Abbey grounds. One side shows an interlacement of serpents and bosses, while the other depicts scenes from the Bible. The cross is 2 3/4 by 1 inch and comes on sterling silver chain.
