Maher Cross

The Maher Cross. I've done a post about this some time ago. It almost looks out of place in an Aussie cemetery. It was commisioned by the Maher family and carved from a single piece of marble by a Mr Angelo Bertozzi, research shows Mr Bertozzi was a stonemason from Carrara Italy.

One can imagine it sitting on some part of the Irish shoreline awaiting some Vikings to leap out of their longboat for some heavy duty pillaging. The below "meanderings" are gorgeous.
