This lovely 15 inch olive wood wall cross is bordered with mother of pearl and features 5 Holy Land relics (articles) in inset glass containers. (Please note: These are not ancient relics. We refer to them as relics as many of our customers refer to them as that.) These articles sometimes vary. The ones we have pictured are (clockwise from top) Holy Land olive leaves, frankincense, soil, stones and in the center, Rose of Sharon. This lovely wall cross is made by Christian artisans in biblical Bethlehem from Holy Land olive wood and comes with a certificate of authenticity and our Holy Land Treasures gift card.
This style of cross is called a 14 Stations Cross. It is made from 14 separate pieces of Holy Land olive wood to commemorate the 14 Stations of the Cross (the Via Dolorosa) in Jerusalem. Each arm of the cross is made from 3 pieces of wood to represent the Holy Trinity.
