One of the most famous depictions of Christ by the pre-renaissance master Giotto Di Bondone, our Giotto Crucifix Wall Plaque is both theologically complex as well aesthetically beautiful. This image is based on the original work which is displayed in the Santa Maria Novella church in Florence.   

At the end of each arm of the cross are square panels depicting the Blessed Mother and St. John the Evangelist, both of whom direct their gaze toward Christ as He hangs on the Cross. Giotto painted this image with a sense of realism and dramatic intensity, with Christ slumping forward in the moment of His death and the blood of His wounds highlighted against His pale skin. Below Jesus are the rocks of Calvary and the skull of Adam, while the black and red colors in the background of the image symbolize death and the blood that Christ shed during His Passion.  

Adorn a home, prayer room, or chapel with this glossy wood Giotto Crucifix wall cross. Hand-crafted in Steubenville, Ohio, this unique cross is available in a variety of sizes to fit any space, and is sure to be treasured for generations to come!
