This classic Crosses, seen throughout the Holy Land, is made from locally sourced olive wood and crafted by artisans in the Bethlehem area.
The shape of the Jerusalem Crosses has a deep historical and spiritual significance. The large Crosses in the middle represents Jesus, and the four smaller ones represent the gospel message–or the four gospels of Matthew, Mark, Luke and John–going out to the four corners of the world. For some, the five Crosses represent the five wounds inflicted on Jesus when He was crucified.
Note: Due to the nature of olive wood and the individuality of the artisans and their processes, the product may differ slightly from the picture posted.
