Our hand carved Crucifixes are all made from Holy Land olive wood in Bethlehem in the carving shop of world renowned Catholic artisan Jeries Facouseh. These beautiful carved wall wooden Crucifixes are handcrafted in meticulous detail with each piece being a work of art. With each carved Crucifix you will receive a made in the Holy Land certificate of authenticity and our Holy Land Treasures gift card.
These carved wall Crucifixes are not made in large foreign factories with no thought of what is being made. Each of our carved olive wood Catholic Crucifixes are hand carved by and under the direction of one of the finest Catholic Crucifix artisans of all time, our dear friend Jeries Facouseh. Our hand carved wall Crucifixes each carry a unique tough of elegance that can only be applied when the artist is doing the work himself, a work of art that can not be applied by a machine. These Crucifixes are carved in Jeries' Manger Street Bethlehem Olivart carving shop, about a 10 minute walk from the site where the Lord Jesus was born.
Most hand carved Crucifixes and other wooden carvings from the Holy Land do not carry any paperwork of authenticity or anything other than an ink stamp on the back of the carving. We here at Holy Land Treasures feel like we have done more than has ever been done to authenticate that our carved olive wood Crucifixes are made in the Holy Land by including a made in the Holy Land certificate of authenticity with each beautiful carved Crucifix that we sell. With each sale that we have, be it for a Crucifix or any other hand carved product, we also try to tell you a little bit about the artisan. (A note from the owner of Holy Land Treasures USA, Ricky Anderson) There are many talented Catholic artisans in the Holy Land that produce carved olive wood Crucifixes and other pieces of olive wood religious art, and we have done business with many of them. When it comes to naming the best crafter of carved Crucifixes and olive wood religious art I would have to say that Jeries Facouseh and his team (formerly Fatima Olive Wood Works) are the finest that I have ever known. Simply compare the pictures of our carved wooden Crucifixes with others you find for sale and I think that you will agree. Jeries is not just a fine wood carver of Crucifixes, he is a wonderful godly man as well, a man that I call my brother.
