The workshops of Hani and Johnny Handal, where this large wooden Catholic Crucifix is made, are on Manger Street in Bethlehem, not far from the birthplace of the Lord Jesus. This large Crucifix is not made in a large factory, but each is individually hand made, with each lovely large Crucifix having its' own beautiful character and of impeccable quality. Johnny carves the wooden part of the lovely Crucifix and Hani casts all of the metal parts in his casting shop. This wooden Catholic Crucifix is rich in symbolism and goes by many names. It is a 14 Stations Catholic Crucifix, being made from fourteen pieces of Holy Land olive wood to represent the 14 Stations of the Cross (Via Dolorosa). Each arm of this large wooden Catholic Crucifix is made from 3 pieces of Holy Land olive wood to symbolize the Holy Trinity. This style of Crucifix is also called a Budded Crucifix, Roman Catholic, Roman and Roman Byzantine Crucifix. This large wooden Catholic wall Crucifix is offered exclusively here at Holy Land Treasures USA.
