Signed Vintage Handmade Folk Art Oak Cross W/ Crucifix And Holy Medal Decoration:
Wood cross crafted of oak with a shiplap joint measures 12" x 20". Coated with varnish, it features over thirty holy medals and medallions and crucifixes commemorating the Holy Family,the Virgin Mary, Christ, and saints. At each corner of the cross is a crucifix. On the back, the artist's name is scratched into the wood. I believe this comes from one of the parishioners of Our Lady of Mt. Carmel given the prominence of the Lady of Mount Carmel medallion. The church located in Williamsburg, Brooklyn is renowned for the Feast of the Giglio during which a large tower with a platform holding a band is hoisted on parishioners shoulders and paraded through the streets. A beautiful symbol of devotion, the starting price reflects the fact that I'm not too concerned about selling it.
