Orthodox Christian Crucifix-one of hallmarks of Russian Christianity. The Easter joy is ever present in the Orthodox Crucifixion. This is why Christ does not die on the Orthodox cross, but openly spreads out his arms as if to embrace the entire humankind. This golden cross necklace has been artistically hand crafted in Russia in compliance with all strict requirements that the Orthodox canons impose upon production of religious jewelry. The inscriptions in Church Slavonic language praise the Lord and the Christianity: IНЦI - 'Іисус Назарянинъ, Царь Іудейскій' (Latin: Iēsus Nazarēnus, Rēx Iūdaeōrum, English: Jesus the Nazarene, King of the Jews), IC XC (Iисус Христосъ-Jesus Christ), НИКА (from Nike-the winged Goddess of Victory. Signifies Christ's triumph over death and purgatory). The reverse features an ever-present statement in Russian: 'Спаси и сохрани' (Save and Protect, oh Lord). Made in Kostroma, Russia.
