Carndonagh Crosses - The pilgrim
Carndonagh Crosses - The pilgrim
The two smaller, pillar stones shown in C4645 : Carndonagh Church both carry carvings similar to those found on the high cross. This is the south pillar. The west face depicts a figure holding a bell in one hand and a satchel or book in the other. A drop head staff lay under his feet. All of these symbols are commonly used to represent a pilgrim, with the satchel symbolizing a traveller.
