This wall cross does not contain ancient Holy Land relics. It contains various Holy Land (Israel) articles such as soil, stones, etc. that are referred to as relics. This lovely 11 inch wall cross is made from olive wood, bordered in Mother of Pearl and contains 5 relics in inset glass windows around the cross. These lovely crosses are made by Christian artisans in biblical Bethlehem and are rich in symbolism. This style of cross goes by many names including Roman, Byzantine and and a 14 Stations Cross. It is made from 14 separate pieces of olive wood to commemorate the Fourteen Stations of the Cross (or, Via Dolorosa) in Jerusalem. Each arm of the cross is made from 3 pieces of olive wood to represent the Holy Trinity. We offer these crosses individually and in bulk and each cross comes with our gift card and a made in the Holy Land certificate of authenticity.
The cross we have pictured contains (Clockwise from top: Holy Land olive leaves, frankincense, soil, stones and in the center, Rose of Sharon. These articles will vary with season.)
