The cross head almost hidden in the hedge. The rose is on the left of the cross.


On the side of an almost hidden lane that runs between two tall lines of hedges there's this little masterpiece.
A cross head that sits on some kind of a stone basin, or a bullaun stone with a deep hollow, that is 60 centimetres tall from the ground. In the stone basin the water flows slowly.
Somebody has planted a rose to the left of the cross head.
Sadly the cross head is almost completely overgrown and covered with moss.
The cross head is 95 centimetres tall and 110 centimetres wide.
Absolutely fantastic!
