This is a stunningly beautiful wooden wayside shrine handcrafted from solid spruce. This shrine was meticulously crafted in the united states using all wooden dowel construction, with no screws or nails (save small tacks used for the trim).Inside the shrine is a beautiful italian-made wooden crucifix. Any of our crosses, crucifixes, or icons can be used; just specify in the checkout or message for options. They can also be left empty, allowing you to add your own item of devotion. This particular shrine is stained in golden pecan, beautifully accenting the wood's natural grain. Wayside shrines devoted to christ and the saints have been a staple of the european countryside for centuries.
Now you can continue that pious tradition in your own home. These shrines are intended for indoor use, though they can be used outdoors in a sheltered location. Outdoor shrines with protective polyurethane coatings and roof shingles will be available soon. A sawtooth self-leveling hangar is included for secure mounting.
