This Deluxe Outdoor Shrine Set features the Bertucci Stations of the Cross. This set of 14 Stations provides a great source of meditation upon the Passion of Christ and are the perfect addition to the Lenten season.
The Bertucci Stations of the Cross set is named after the unidentified artist who painted the images in the late 18th century, thought to perhaps be the obscure Italian painter Nicola Bertucci. Characteristic of the Italian, late baroque style, the Bertucci Stations of the Cross feature lush textures and vivid coloration, particularly in the deep blue sky and the vibrant red robe worn by Christ. With the Blessed Mother taking over as the central figure in stations thirteen and fourteen, these Stations of the Cross offer an additional element of Marian devotion and meditation that is unique to this set.
These shrines are made of a combination of PVC and HDPE, the same kind of Poly Wood that outdoor decking and furniture is made of. It is made of recycled plastics and can be recycled again if the need ever arises. The material is waterproof, colorfast, bug proof, durable, resistant to cracking and splitting, won’t rot, and requires far less maintenance than real wood. They are assembled with stainless steel fasteners which won’t rust or stain.
Each image plate is printed, cut, and assembled by hand in Steubenville, Ohio. They are printed directly on 1/8 inch thick Aluminum Composite Material (ACM), typically used in the signage industry. These plates are UV-resistant, guaranteed for 3-5 years of perfect image fidelity with minimal fading. The image plates are permanently adhered to the shrines.
The shrine holding the 4x6 image is 10" wide by 11.5" tall. The 6x9 is 12.5" wide by 15.5" tall, and the 8x12 image is 15" wide by 19.5" tall. The shrines have a 2.5"-3.5" overhang to help protect the image. We also have just the aluminum image plates available on this website for sale if you wish to build your own style shrine!
They come with a keyhole slot in the back to be hung up. Or you can mount them to stakes and stick them in the ground. We sell a set of stakes that come with screws to make assembly easier!
