Simply Elegant! I love this crucifix. I debated on which one to get; the white or full color? I am very pleased with my choice. It makes a beautiful, simple and graceful statement of faith. I would recommend this crucifix to anyone who wants an elegant yet understated centerpiece for their home.
Even more lovely in person, the package arriving was a family event, the kids were excited to open. My seven year old asked if we are going to paint it, but I love the minimal beauty. If you are considering, your only regret will be if you don't purchase.
This Crucifix dates to c. 1265 and hangs in the Basilica of the Holy Cross in Florence, Italy. The Franciscans, in the 13th Century, commissioned it but it is not to be confused with the San Damiano Crucifix to be found now in the Basilica of Saint Clare in Assisi, Italy. Google "Cimabue Crucifix" and read the Wikipedia account of its history. I love this crucifix! I am ordering another to replace the one I just sent as a wedding gift!
We took the TV out of our room to make this crucifix the centerpiece of our room—and Christ the center of our life. This crucifix is elegant and clean while still making a bold statement. We love it!!
A beautiful crucifix! We have it hanging in our bedroom and it's a lovely focal piece.
