Ruthwell Cross by Justpowelly Ruthwell Cross by Justpowelly
The Ruthwell Cross is a fantastic survivor of Englands conversion to Christianity. It displays both Christian iconography as well as Pagan iconography, now lost, in the form of animistic swirling plants and creatures.

By chance I was staying close to Ruthwell so I made sure to sketch it.

*The "cross-piece" of the Cross which features the triangle and animals are restoration work done by Masons, they display Free-Mason images rather than the original shapes.
