This side of the cross shows scenes from the bible, including the Crucifixion at the centre of the head, the sacrifice of Isaac to the right and David with harp to the left, Daniel in the Lion's Den appears in the bottom panel of the shaft and above that is the temptation of St Anthony, Adam and Eve are in the panel above that and the top panel bears a raven bringing bread to St Paul and St Anthony. The base has images of animals. (http://www.megalithicireland.com/High%20cross%20castledermot.htm)
