Golden Flamingo helps you stay true to the tradition of our forefathers. Like all other Orthodox body crosses in our Orthodox Collection, this two tone gold man's Orthodox cross pendant is handcrafted in Russia to strict requirements of the Orthodox Church. The crucifix carries the body of Jesus made of white gold over rose gold pattern with symbols typical for Orthodoxy: Acronym IНЦI (INRI) nailed to the top of the cross. This Latin inscription commanded by Pontius Pilate stated 'Iēsus Nazarēnus, Rēx Iūdaeōrum', (Jesus the Nazarene, King of the Jews / Іисус Назарянинъ, Царь Іудейскій in Chuch Slavonic), and respectively IC XC (Іисусъ Христосъ-Jesus Christ). The top of this Man's Orthodox cross is adorned by the tiny Icon of Christ of Edessa/ Икона Спас Нерукотворный (an image of our Savior's face impressed on the cloth that Saint Veronica gave him to wipe his face on the way to his crucifixion) considered the strongest Orthodox symbol of protection. The skull at the base of the cross represents the ashes of Adam, whose sins were washed away with the blood of Christ on Golgotha. The reverse features an ever-present message in Russian: 'Спаси и сохрани'-'Save and protect'. This irresistible Russian style crucifix is one of our bestsellers of the last 3 years.
