The high cross (or standing cross) is a uniquely Irish tradition from the middle ages. These crosses are free standing, ornately carved crosses of stone that were erected all through out Ireland in celebration of their faith. The circle around the intersection of the cross is said to represent the rising sun- a blending of Christian and Pagan symbols to create the uniquely gorgeous symbol famous today.
