Beautifully engraved on this fine cross is the dramatic and poignant scene of Christ's passion. His emaciated body is vividly detailed, with His head falling to one side to suggest this is the exact moment of death, and hence the beginning of resurrection and re-birth. The Trinity is shown with God the Father above giving His blessings, while two angels kneel either side of the Holy Spirit in the form of a dove. We are offered here a variety of perspectives; first looking downwards upon the rough folds of the sepulchral Golgotha hills; then lifting upwards to the horizon line of distant Jerusalem with a deep blue sky and clouds in the background. Moving upwards the spatial area clears, and in a sense looses perspective, as if we are seeing heaven where there are no spatial boundaries. On the reverse is inscribed: "God the Keeper of the Whole Universe, the Creator of the Beauty of the Church,the Powerof Tzars,isthetrue Faithwhichisproclaimedeverywhere." Heaven and earth, death and eternal life, are exquisitely depicted on this lovely cross. -(PF.5174)Enameled Brass Cross - PF.5174Origin: Russia Circa: 1750 AD to 1900 ADDimensions: 10.5" (26.7cm) high x 5.25" (13.3cm) wide Collection: Russian Style: Russian Orthodox Medium: Enameled Brass Condition: Mint
