Absolutely gorgeous single decade rosary with an artistically hand-carved ByRon PalmCross, bronze antique replica beads and bead caps, and a bronze antique replica Our Lady Center. At the center of the cross is a bronze medallion with the Face of our Crucified Christ. The palm cross is attached to the rosary by a 2mm leather cord and is perfect sized to hold in the palm of your hand and find comfort. The wooden balls are set off by antique replica beautifully detailed bronze bead caps.
I have designed these larger rosaries for personal prayer or small group prayer. What a beautiful rosary for a couple or a parent and child to share! I also imagine a beautiful prayer experience with a bedridden loved one holding the cross for comfort while someone else prays on the rosary beads.
I love praying on this style and size rosary. The images of Jesus and Our Lady are more visible and the raised details on this larger size are wonderful and more meaningful to the touch!
The cross is a copyrighted ByRon PalmCross original. They are hand-carved from American Black Walnut and each one is one-of-a-kind. The front and back surfaces are slightly curved to fit into the "palm" of the hand. No varnish or lacquer is applied, so the oils from the hands holding the PalmCross become the finish. Every cross is numbered on the back with the year of copyright (1997), the year it was carved, and the number carved of that style (Face of Christ). These are amazing crosses and "the Cadillac of" palm or comfort crosses!
The "Behold the Man" Face of Christ Medallion symbolizes the Son of God, Jesus Christ, Who assumed human nature and became Man in order to accomplish our Salvation. Dying He destroyed our death, rising He restored our life.
The palm cross is 5 inches high, 4 inches wide and 1/2 inch thick. The rosary laid flat at the longest point is 17.5 inches. The wooden beads are 3/4 inch. The Our Lady center is 2.5 inches high by 1.9 inches wide.
These fine antique replicas are cast in solid bronze using the lost wax method and produced in the U.S.A.
This comes in a quality gift box.
