Saints and Stones: Boskenna Cross

The Boskenna Cross is a dressed granite wheel-headed monolithic cross with a short integral shaft set over a later round shaft and socketted into a stepped round base made of two granite monoliths.

The face of the cross displays a figure of Christ with his arms outstretched and feet pointing outwards. The reverse shows a four-limbed cross with expanded ends formed by cutting away at each end four triangular areas.
