Made from salvaged wood that my brother collects and stains, this cross was put together to capture that old rustic feeling of simpler times and a simpler more steadfast faith that the modern world has lost touch with in large. The faith of our fathers that saw them through lean times and hard days, and of our mothers who never slowed down for sorrow.
The Face of Our Lord in the center is burned into a piece of leather and tacked to the wood using black iron tacks, which, while they work and look good, also serve as a good reminder, i think, of what our Lord went through on that cross. And He did it for US.
The picture with a pen is for you to gauge the size of the piece.
