This is the image of the cross from the rising of CHRISTIANITY. Many of the crosses from those time, saved until this time – lost some parts. I’ve restored several different destroyed crosses in the one cross. The cross made for Celtic bishop. The oak is the Holy Wood for celts. So because of it I used the white oak for carving this cross. For woodfinish was used beeswax with a little addition of the natural pigment for making the aging patina.
