Jesus Christ Celtic Crucifix Stone Carving Jerpoint Abbey County Kilkenny Ireland
Photograph - Fine Art Print
Beautiful stone relief carving depicting Jesus Christ's Crucifixion as found at the medieval ruins of Jerpoint Abbey in County Kilkenny, Ireland. An extensive library of imagery from Ireland is available in my galleries. This image is part of my Jerpoint Abbey Gallery.
Construction of Jerpoint Abbey was started by Donogh O'Donoghoe Mac Gilla Patraic, the King of Osraige, in 1180 AD. Jerpoint is famous for the number and variety of its stone carvings. The abbey flourished for several centuries until Henry VIII moved to dissolve all monasteries in Ireland. Today, Jerpoint is an Irish National Monument.
