Monumental Sculpture

Title: Pic Mitchell
Slane Churchyard

Erected at Slane Churchyard this monument to Pic Mitchell is in limestone and based on sq.rt. 5. The upper carving is a stylised CHI-RHO monogram an early Christian symbol pre-dating the cross; it is also a symbol for fertility. The lower part of the hedstone has a carved circle containing a bee. It is simply an aesthetic bee, neither queen nor worker, used as a device to acknowledge her interest in beekeeping.
