Some time back. Picked it up for the square stock in it. But after looking at it for some time, I have decided to paint it and let it live. The square stock will be Semi-Gloss Black and if the paint is still good, the rings and ends castings will be Bronze. Should look good when done.

I put it in front of the Ford so you could see how big it is.

Nice of you to give it a fresh lease on life.
It should be nice when done.
Yard decoration or hood emblem?

Rather large for a hood emblem, I think!

That would be a "Celtic Cross".  Copied & pasted info below.

 

The Celtic cross is a symbol used today in many contexts, both religious and secular. The Celtic cross is like a traditional cross but with a ring around the intersection of the stem and arms. The whole cross is often decorated with ornate Gaelic patterns. Sometimes the Celtic cross is set on a tall base to resemble more closely the traditional Christian cross, and at other times the symbol stands alone. The Celtic cross is sometimes nothing more than a simple “stick” drawing on a gravestone or at a religious site; other times it is sculpted and quite ornate. The Celtic cross is also called the “sun cross” by some who interpret the ring to represent the sun.

You can't cut it up, it's consecrated. The Pope will have the Swiss Guard after you.

 

It will look nice with some Ivy or Climbing Roses.

 

What does it symbolize?

??? Ummmh. . .      Jesus? Can I send you some Watchtower pamphlets?

Thanks, Daniel! My friend (a Baptist Minister) seems to like it.
