One of our top-selling products, these beautiful reproductions of the Stations of the Cross are printed in full color on weather and fade resistant aluminum image plates mounted on stained cedar wood shrines designed for outdoor use. The sets are very popular as Way of the Cross prayer walks, Eagle Scout projects, and for home garden devotions. We also have many other images available as outdoor shrines as well. The Shrine holding the 4"x6" image is 9" wide by 11" tall. The 6"x9" is 10" wide by 15" tall, and the 8"x12" image is 13.5" 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! 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.
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.
