This olive wood crucifix was hand crafted in the Holy Land by family artisans and features an eastern orthodox cross style with little round windows with brass borders on each end. Inside each window are varying little bits of earth from the Holy Land; soil, stones, incenses, or flowers from Jerusalem. The wood used is pruned from olives groves, and great care is taken in selecting and drying the wood, then in carving to showcase the beautiful grains of each piece. A great souvenir from the land where Jesus walked and where the Church was born.

|Review:||We needed a gift to send for a 50th wedding anniversary for a Christian couple. My husband and I had received a larger one several months prior and we love it. When I ordered this particular item, I didn't realize that it would be much smaller than the one that we had, but it actually turned out to be just the right gift. The quality of the crucifix is remarkable and the design is one of a kind variety. It is truly a special reminder of the sacrifice of the cross.|
