The High Crosses of Ireland stand as elegant monuments to a high civilization from the last quarter of the first Christian millennium. The photographs in this book capture the quality of those master carvers' work of a thousand years ago. The book illustrates the majesty and wonder of these forms, with their characteristic ring around the head, a potent nationalistic symbol so recognized as to be used in nineteenth century graves on both sides of the Atlantic by all those wishing to identify themselves as Irish.
