Jerusalem Cross made by hand in Bethlehem from the natural olive wood.
Jerusalem Cross or “Pilgrim Cross” is considered a powerful protective amulet against negative energy and protection from the evil eye.
Such cross was once present on the emblem of Jerusalem, and later became a symbol of The Equestrian Order of the Holy Sepulchre of Jerusalem and crusaders.
There are several interpretations of the sacred meaning of the Jerusalem Cross:
• The Jerusalem cross symbolizes Jesus Christ and his four apostles who wrote the four Gospels.
• The pilgrim's cross designates Jesus himself and the four wounds he received during the crucifixion.
• The cross from Jerusalem means the Crucifix and four nails.
Made in the Holy Land the cross has great religious significance for all Christians.
The natural texture of the olive wood is unique in every piece. Every thing are made only from the pruning's of ancient olive trees growing in Bethlehem, so they are environmentally friendly.
