This olive wood crucifix was handcrafted in the Holy Land by family artisans and features an eastern orthodox cross style with little round windows with brass borders on each end. Inside each window are varying little bits of earth from the Holy Land; soil, stones, incenses, or flowers from Jerusalem. The wood used is pruned from olives groves, and great care is taken in selecting and drying the wood, then in carving to showcase the beautiful grains of each piece. A great souvenir from the land where Jesus walked and where the Church was born.
