Cross No. 94



Kirk Michael Cross no. 94

Cross Slab (no. 94)


At one time a door lintel at Bishopscourt. The decorative design may indicate Anglican influence. Each face bears an equal limbed cross surrounded by a circular ring. One of the faces can be traced with borders ending in large double volutes and plait. The ring is decorated with a loop twist. On the right, below the circle is a spiral design. There is a crouched dog head figure elbow on knee and chin supported by his outstretched fingers. Below the volute is a hound, but the rest is worn away. The other face has a plait four design at the top and a man on horseback, armed with spear at the bottom. One edge shows plait of three.
