This spectacular solid walnut SAN DAMIANO wall cross is hand-made in Italy, and is truly a magnificent work of art. It is large in size, 20" x 29" tall. It is a wonderful Catholic gift from Italy!
In the 12th Century, an unknown Umbrian artist painted the Crucifix Icon of the famous San Damiano Cross from Italy.
It was more than likely painted for San Damiano to hang
over the Altar as the Blessed Sacrament was not reserved in non Parish Churches of those
times and especially those that had been abandoned and neglected as we know San
Damiano had been.
In 1257 the Poor Clares left San Damiano for San Giorgio and took the Crucifix with them.
They carefully kept the Cross for 700 years.
In Holy Week of 1957, it was placed on public view for the first time over the new Altar in
San Giorgio's Chapel in the Basilica of St Clare of Assisi.
