You see the cross of exclusive work, made of holy land from the Holy Sepulchre in Jerusalem, also known as the Resurrection Temple.
The cross is made, using the specific modern earth high-temperature compression technology.
During manufacturing process, we use holy soil from the Holy Sepulchre in Jerusalem, Holy water from Jordan River and Holy Fire from Kuwuklia candle from the Holy Sepulcher.
The cross is consecrated at the Holy Sepulchre in Jerusalem.
The three – dimensional image on the cross from both sides is done in a beautiful Byzantine style.
The cross front part has the image of Jesus Christ crucifixion and Longine lance, which has pierced the Jesus under- rib to make sure about his death.
The crucifixion is framed with vine cane leaves based on the following gospel statement: «I am the true vine, and my Father is the husbandman (John. 15:1), "I am the true vine and you are boughs..." (John. 15:5). Such Christian iconography takes its roots from Greek cloisters and presents Jesus Christ in the image of the Almighty, surrounded by cane with the apostles described on the boughs.
Under the crucifixion, we see the skull with crossed bones, titled as “Adam head”. You can see this head on the various version of crucifixion or cross. According to Christian legend, the spirit of Adam is on the foot of the hill of Golgotha- the place of Jesus Christ crucifixion. The blood of Jesus Christ has washed the skull of first man (the legend says that the Holy Sepulchre in Jerusalem had constructed the Adam’s side altar on the place of burial and finding of Adam skull. Behind the throne of that side altar people could see the continuation of Golgotha split, revealing the place of Adam’s burial). The split has appeared based on providence will during earthquake at the moment of Jesus Christ death- the blood of God has washed human sins and gave the possibility to get free from death and get saved, having washed the split and Adam’s head.
The center of the cross rear side has the image of four vine cane boughs symbolizing four Gospels. The cross lower part has the image of Jerusalem cross with offshoots ending with small crosses. Such small crosses symbolize the goodness ubiquity due to various reflections of divine center. Besides this, the big cross symbolizes Jesus Christ; small crosses present the authors of four Gospels, promoting the doctrine along four universe sides. Finally, all five crosses can be the reflection of the Saviour wounds. Horizontally along the cross center there is an inscription Jerusalem as this place is the place from holy land where the cross had been created.
It is worth mentioning that this manufacturing technology and the cross history itself has deep roots. Byzantine “benediction medallions” with the description of various events taking place at visited holy places, became quite widespread. The medallions were made of earth or clay grains, taken from pilgrimage centers.
Some similar medallions of VI – VII A.C. had been found by archeologists in Israel in Beit- Shan district and exposed in Israel Jerusalem museum in 2000.
The cross colors and structure may vary depending on manufacturing series and different correlation of stones and sand grains at the earth from the Holy Sepulchre.
