Medium Cross of our Lord

Material: Cast bronze with blue and white enameling
The city of Jerusalem is depicted in the background, for Christ was crucified outside the city walls. Hidden in a cave under the earth is 'the skull of Adam' (for by pious tradition it is said that Christ was crucified at precisely the same place where Adam was buried). The top of the Cross depicts the "Icon Not Painted by Hands".
