This is a beautiful and unique crucifix featuring each of the four gospel writers in the arms of of the cross.
St John is at the top with his symbol, and eagle; St Luke is on the right with his symbol, an ox; St Matthew is on the bottoms with his symbol, the winged man or angel; and St Mark is on the left with his symbol, a lion. In the center is the crucified Christ on his cross
The reverse of the medal shows a papal symbol, so I believe the original medal came from Vatican City.
The medal was cast in sterling silver from an antique medal in the Rosa Mystica Collection so it shows all the beauty and history of the original piece. It comes with a matching holy card in an organza gift bag, ready for gift-giving, and was made in the USA.
