This beautiful carving combines two classic symbols of Christian faith. The Crosses proclaims the sacrificial, reconciling love of God in the crucifixion of Jesus (Colossians 1:20). The fish not quite as well known but carries great meaning: In the early days of the church, persecuted Christians used the fish as a secret sign of their identity. The Greek letters spelling ‘fish? (ichthys) formed an acrostic for “Jesus Christ, Son of God, Savior.”
