This cross design has the circle in the center symbolizing God, the motionless mover. Although the wheel cross as a whole was originally a symbol for Christ derived from the Chi-Rho monogram, it came to symbolize heaven. The interlaced knotwork, so prominent on Celtic crosses, represented the beginning and the end of the eternal circle.

Each object is inspired by an actual monument or historical piece and has a reference to the time period and culture. Once a subject is selected, it is hand carved in clay by the artists from which a mold is made. The items are cast with a sturdy cast stone material and go through several processes to make it look as close to the ancient stone carvings as possible.
