This Large Olive Wood and Mother of Pearl Crucifix is a beautiful way to bring the sacredness of the Holy Land into your home.
The 5 capsules on the front contain incense from the Church of the Nativity, soil from Bethlehem, stones from Jerusalem, and dried olive leaves and flowers that collectively represent the essence of the Holy Land. The back has small circles engraved in the wood, representing the 14 stations of the cross.
It is 11 in. tall and 7.3 in. wide, and comes with a hole in the back for hanging.
Each piece is made from olive wood that is dried for a year, hand carved, then sealed with a soft, clear lacquer-based wax for protection. As this is made from natural wood, the grain on each item is unique! We recommend you keep it out of direct sunlight. Made by Bethlehem Handicrafts, a small family business from the Holy Land.
