This traditional San Damian Cross is well-known as the one that St. Francis of Assisi was praying before when he is said to have received the commission from the Lord to rebuild the Church. The original cross hangs in the Basilica of St. Clare in Assisi, Italy. Also referred to as an icon cross, because in addition to the main figure it contains images of other saints and people related to the incident of Christ's crucifixion. The hand painted design features gold tones that handsomely contrast the dominant reds in the icon cross itself.
