Hang the St. Brigid cross in the kitchen of your home as protection against fire and evil as the Irish custom indicates. Measuring 10" x 10", this resin wall hanging is easy to display and comes ready to hang. We love the way it looks like natural reed weaving, but not having to worry about it drying out or becoming brittle like real reed. St. Bridid is one of Ireland's patron saints along with St. Patrick and Columba. Many believe the St. Brigid cross holds more ancient meaning prior to the Christian symbol it is today because protection against fire is not a part of St. Brigid's life (451-525AD).

The story of how the St. Brigid cross originated involves her being called to the bedside of a chieftain Lord who was not Christian. He was dying, ill, and delirious, so she began to weave a cross from the rush on the floor. He quieted down and converted to Christianity right before dying. Therefore, this St. Brigid cross makes an inspirational house warming gift or a lovely gift filled with rich Irish heritage for an Irish-hearted friend or family member.
