Special attention is given to detailing every cm of this hand-carved cross. The rich color and interesting veins are characteristic of the beautiful Bethlehem Olive Wood. This Cross is carved from one piece of olive wood.
This cross was designed and hand carved by Christian artisans in The Holy Land.
The fish is a significant symbol for the Christians since it symbolizes Jesus Christ. The fish sign is a very old one, known as ichthys, an indication of the fish or Jesus fish.
The Christians adopted it as a secret symbol; ichthys means (Jesus Christ, Son of God, Savior).
Because the sign of the fish is older than Christianity and was used by Greeks and Romans as well, the early Jesus’ followers believed it would not raise suspicions. So the ichthys fish marked the Christian gathering places and tombs .
Jesus’ fish meaning is also related to the Holy Eucharist and its particular significance for Christians. Ichthys fish’s meaning is also revealed in the bible. We all know how Jesus multiplied the loaves and fish.
In this case, the symbol of fish is related to faith, abundance, and, most important, charity. Jesus referred to His disciples as “fishers of men.” the catholic fish is a symbol of the Christian religion.
This cross will make the perfect Holy communion gift, Baptism or Christening gift. Wedding or Housewarming gift.
