Bully's Acre, Kilmainham,
Dublin City


A remarkable granite cross-shaft, whose West face is carved in high relief with an anthropomorphic knot,
possibly symbolising the power of evil to twist us into faceless, characterless complexity.

Compare another human interlace on the North cross at Clonmacnois: a figure which paganists have identified as a squatting (possibly Satanic) Cernunnos, the Celtic horned god.
