Description

This Table Cross is a genuine monastic product made by monks at the Holy Monastery of Iviron on Mount Athos.

It is made of crushed wood, compressed in a mold, with the impression of the canonical symbolism of an authentic Blessing Cross. It is a fine and unique monastic artwork of exceptional quality.

The one side is impressed by the Lord on the Cross with Mary and Peter supporting his hands. He stands on Hades as a sign of His victory over death. He is crowned by the inscription Jesus of Nazareth King of the Jews with an angel resting thereon.

On the other side again Jesus is impressed, baptized by John in his left, while on the right the scene blesses Archangel Gabriel. Over the Lord’s head the dove symbolizes the Holy Spirit and the seven-branched lamp (Jewish menorah) symbolizes the seven gifts of the Holy Spirit or the seven Sacraments of the Church.

The Table Cross stands on a basis and is completely coated with colored polish which makes it waterproof when using it in Sanctification.

It also bears the official stamp of Mount Athos and the Holy Monastery of Iviron.

Dimensions: 9.5 x 21.5
