To beckon the sun
'tween solstice and equinox
'tis Saint Brigid's cross
This is a St. Brigids Cross I made for Imbolc.
Though a Christian symbol,
it derives from the pagan sunwheel.
Mine is made from palm fronds.
I cut them to the same length
wove them together.
Continued to weave around until I had used 16 fronds.
I hung this cross in my kitchen as is often done in Irish homes.
