Demonstrate your devotion and your faith as well as give your home a stylish contemporary update with this beautiful crucifix. This olive wood cross is hand made in the holy land by christian craftsmen. It is carved from the olive trees that had been growing since the time of christ. Christian families use the olive branches pruned from olive groves for all of their carvings.
Trees are never cut down. The branches are dried for almost a year before the wood is ready to be carved. Great attention is taken in selecting, drying and carving to showcase the beautiful olive wood grains of each wooden piece.
The star in the center resembles the bethlehem star. At each end of the cross there are four glasses that are filled with relics from the holt land; stones, dry flowers from jerusalem and olive leaves and incense from bethlehem.
Jesus is carved out of wood in this piece unlike some of the other crosses we offer. The artist captured the emotions and the pain in jesus's face all in one simple beautiful carving. We hand select special olive wood branches to create all of our designs. Please note that the olive wood color, grain & appearance may change from piece to another.
