This cross is made from locally sourced olive wood and crafted by artisans in the Bethlehem area. The cross has a small hook on the back for hanging.
This cross brings to mind the shoot of the stump of Jesse – A shoot shall come out from the stump of Jesse, and a branch shall grow out of his roots. The spirit of the Lord shall rest on him, the spirit of wisdom and understanding, the spirit of counsel and might, the spirit of knowledge and the fear of the Lord. His delight shall be in the fear of the Lord. (Isa 11:1-3)
Note: Due to the nature of olive wood and the individuality of the artisans and their processes, every cross is unique and differs slightly from the picture posted
