Description
One of the most beautiful and poignant images known to the world, the crucifixion has been a source of inspiration to artists for centuries; and of course to untold numbers of the faithful. This combination of faith and artistry finds perfect balance in this fine cross. The crucified savior occupies the central area, with God the Father above offering His blessings bordered by two genuflecting angels. Above Christ's halo is the inscription reading "Our King"; while on either side of His head is written "Son of God". The place of execution, Golgotha, is dramatically represented by dense foliage--harsh and cruel-- a single skull, with a Medieval Russian style Jerusalem in the background. Then the space clears as if rising to heaven, where there are angels and divine inscriptions floating in the sky. On the reverse is written: God the Keeper of the Whole Universe, the Creator of the Beauty of the Church, the Power of Tzars, is the true Faith which is proclaimed everywhere." Within the narrow confines of this cross is beautifully engraved the wealth of the Christian faith. - (PF.5176)
