The San Damiano Crucifix is the famous Byzantine style icon cross before which St. Francis of Assisi prayed when he received his commission from Christ to rebuild His Church. The San Damiano cross was painted in the 12th century and today hangs in the Basilica of St. Clare of Assisi. This particular San Damiano crucifix is unique in that a full color panel replica of the original crucifix is affixed to a larger thick wood backing and surrounded by a decorative etched border.   The wood is painted gold which contrasts beautifully with the dominant reds in the icon cross itself, and the thick but light weight wood has the look and feel of an icon.  A great choice for those who love traditional icons. 

  • Measures 8" (L) x 5 3/4" (W) x 5/8" (D)
  • Comes with attached hook for hanging

    A Beautiful Gift

    Our teenage granddaughter asked for a wall crucifix for her birthday. She loves the San Damiano cross we chose for her. It now hangs over the door in her bedroom.

    Lovely

    Perfect size for my kids' bedrooms. Our pastor commented on how lovely it was when I asked him to bless it.
