This deluxe handcrafted shrine is a perfect inspirational piece for your garden, prayer path, porch, or sacred space! Made of solid cedar and treated to withstand outdoor conditions and inclement weather, this unique gift comes in walnut or cedar stain and three different sizes. The overall size of the shrines are 10" wide by 11.5" tall (4"x"6 image), 12.5" wide by 15.5" tall (6"x9" image), and 15" wide by 19.5" tall (8"x12" image). The metal image plate that comes on each shrine is removable and we also have a wide variety of images available to collect and use different liturgical seasons. This durable product makes an excellent gift for any occasion!
ACM plates are UV-resistant, guaranteed for 3-5 years of perfect image fidelity with minimal fading. For devotees who live above the 40th parallel, or who are able to face their stations to the North or South, many more years of perfect image fidelity are possible! Nonetheless, all things in this world will fade with time, and even the ideal conditions of minimal sunlight will eventually result in fading, even if this is decades down the road.
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.
