Isle of Man Kirk Michael T-Shirt
The Isle of Man t-shirt is a recreation of one of the many Norse crosses found on stones across the island. This cross design was remastered by Sean Parry of Sacred Knot Tattoo after a visit to Kirk Michael.
“Since I first discovered this cross, I have been fascinated by the artistic design and construction. The stone (number 117) is now housed in the Kirk Michael, Isle of Man after being discovered in the grounds of the church. The cross is Celtic in its overall layout and design but has strong Norse input in its loose knotwork and dragon motifs.
It is quite clear that there was a change of artistic direction as the stone was worked from the bottom to the top. Was this down to a change of artists? Was this the work of an overly ambitious apprentice who was given a simple solution to save the carving? We will never know.
The more I study the designs on this cross the more intrigued I am! I hope this window into the past intrigues you as much as it does me. I will also add that hidden in the sea mist behind me in the photo is the Isle of Man itself”.
