Nevsky's Books is proud to feature this exceptional cross. Meticulously hand-carved from maple wood, the outer layer exhibits bright, red garnets and the breathtaking carving of the Prayer to the Venerable Cross along the edge:

"Let God arise, and let His enemies be scattered; and let those who hate Him flee from His face. As smoke vanishes, let them vanish; and as wax melts from the presence of fire, so let the demons perish from the presence of those who love God"
"Да воскре́снет Бог, и расточа́тся врази́ Его́, и да бежа́т от лица́ Его́ ненави́дящии Его́. Я́ко исчеза́ет дым, да исче́знут; я́ко та́ет воск от лица́ огня́, та́ко да поги́бнут бе́си от лица́ лю́бящих Бо́га"

The core is masterfully fitted with inlaid cypress wood, featuring the crucifixion of our Lord. On the right arm of the crucifix are carvings of the Mother of God and St. Mary Magdalene. The left arm depicts St. John the Apostle and St. Longinus the Centurion. Two angels grace to top bar, bearing the words "Царь Славы" or "King of Glory."

Four garnets surround the "Not-made-by-hands Image of Christ," to which a smooth, adjustable wood-and-link chain is secured. 

Inscribed on the back of this beautiful cross is the powerful verse:

"Be an example to the believers in speech and conduct, in love, in faith, in purity" (1 Tim. 4:12)
 “Образ буди верным словом, житием, любовию, духом, верою, чистотою (1 Тим. 4, 12).
Dimensions: 4.75" x 2.25" x 0.4"
