Russian Enameled Brass Cross - PF.5173
Price: $5000.00
The crucifixion is one of the most powerful visual images in the world--whether as a monumental work of art in a great cathedral or a more humble devotional object for private worship. This lovely cross falls into the latter category, used for home chapels, taken on journeys and for private meditation. The Christ figure is beautifully modeled showing folds of clothing around the waist and the emaciated body of the crucified savior. Above his halo is theinscription"Our King", while either side of His head is written "Son of God". On the upper portion is depicted the Holy Trinity, with God the Father offering His blessings, flanked by two kneeling angels and the Holy Spirit in the center in the form of a dove. Golgotha, the infamous hill of execution, is graphically represented below, comprising stone towers, skulls andtwisted foliage against a background of rich blue sky and billowy white clouds. The reverse states: "God the Keeper of the Whole Universe, the Creator of the Beauty of the Church, the power of Tzars, is the true Faith which is proclaimed everywhere." Upon this basically simple form we see heaven and earth, spiritual and temporal, integrated so elegantly it is as if we are peering through a veil into the mysteries of the Christian religion. -(PF.5173)Russian Enameled Brass Cross - PF.5173Origin: Russia Circa: 1750 AD to 1900 ADDimensions: 13.25" (33.7cm) high x 7" (17.8cm) wide Collection: Russian Crosses Medium: Enameled Brass
