San Damiano Cross- 10"
- Full of meaning and unique attributes
- Features being a distinctive icon cross
- A replica of the cross St. Francis prayed in front of
The San Damiano wall cross stands out with meaning and unique attributes. This is a replica of the cross in front of which St. Francis prayed when he received a message with great responsibility: to rebuild the Church. The original cross now hangs in Santa Chiara (St. Claire) Church in Assisi, Italy. This San Damiano, or Franciscan, cross is also distinctive in that it is an icon cross because it contains images of people who played significant roles in the crucifixion and resurrection of Christ.
At the top of the cross the hand of God the Father reaches down to welcome the risen Christ into heaven. There are many angels surrounding this little figure of Christ as He goes back to His Father. Behind the extended arms of the central figure of Christ is an outline of His tomb. There are also angels and possibly St. Peter and St. John who ran to the tomb to look for the body of Jesus after Mary Magdelene told them He rose from the dead. The larger figures around Christ are, from left to right, the Virgin Mary, St. John the Beloved, St. Mary Magdalene, and Mary Clopas. There are also two small figures of soldiers. The one on the left is the soldier who pierced Christ's side with a lance and the one on the right is the soldier who offered Christ a sponge soaked in vinegar.
This San Damiano wall cross measures at 10 inches tall. It would be a great addition to any room at home or even at the office. Also a spectacular conversation piece! Gift boxed for your convenience.
