Rock of the Cross

Dziļi zemē iegrimis akmens krusts ar iekaltu krustu krusta zīmi (krusts ar šķērsu galiem). Tā īstie izmēri nav zināmi un nav droši nosakāmi. Latvijā dažādu krustakmeņu ir daudz, un tie ir ļoti dažādi pēc izmēra, formas un iekalto krustu veidola un skaita. Tā kā krusts ir sena un plaši izmantota zīme, tad arī krustakmeņi ir sastopami gan senlatviešu, gan kristiešu tradīcijās. Krustakmeņus pieņemts dalīt divās grupās – kapakmeņi un robežakmeņi. Šis krustakmens ir kapakmens, jo atrodas pie baznīcas, kur agrāk bija kapsēta.

The stone cross with the cross of crosses carved on it has sunk deep into the ground. Its dimensions are not known and cannot be accurately estimated. Many rock crosses can be found in Latvia and they vary greatly in size, form and carvings. Since the cross is an ancient and widely used symbol, rock crosses were part of the ancient Latvian as well as Christian traditions. It is common to divide rock crosses into two groups – gravestones and border markers. This rock cross is a gravestone since it is located near the church on the site of the former cemetery.
