Standing Cross Olive Wood

Olive trees grow in the Holy Land. An evergreen tree which can become as much as 2,000 years old. From the Bible we know that Noah’s dove brought back an olive leaf to the ark and that Jesus prayed next to an olive tree, which is still there to this day, on his way to Jerusalem in Gethsemane.
The cross is the most important Christian symbol and finds its place in the middle of our lives as the symbol of faith, as a place for meditation, motivation and inspiration.
The cross is seen as a visible connection between the worldly and the heavenly. The longitudinal axis from top to bottom shows the connection between God and the world. The short lateral axis represents the humanity’s love for one another. At the point where the axes, God’s love for humanity is expressed.
In our Online-Shop you’ll also find wall crosses made of olive wood, bronze, glass and much more. You’ll also find our exclusive gift pouches fitting to the cross pendants.
The wooden cross symbolises primarily the sacrifice of Jesus Christ and the connection to the world as God’s creation. In the centre God’s presence is tangible. Here, the idea of becoming one even with those initially opposite is symbolised. For example, heaven and earth, ghost and matter.
