Iona Birlinn Wall Plaque

£75.00 (Sold out)

Typical of the West Highland school of stonecarving of the late medieval period, the 'Birlinn and Floriate Cross' motif appears on several graveslabs, most notably at Iona.
This example was copied from a fine graveslab in the Iona Abbey cloisters.
The Birlinn was the war and trade ship of the West Highland Clans, including the Lords of the Isles.
In cold-cast bronze, with a verdigris wax patina, ready to hang. Cast from a carving in stone.
