Meticulously designed, professionally crafted to endure the test of time Orthodox cross. Inside the four-pointed cross with meaningful inscriptions in Church Slavonic one can find typical the more austere eight-pointed Russian cross of a smaller size. The reverse of the cross features prayer "Да воскреснет Бог..."("Let God arise...")* read for protection from demonic attacks.
Symbols and inscriptions on the cross praising Our Heavenly Father and Christianity: ЦРЬ СЛВЫ (Царь Славы-The King of Glory), IC XC СНЪ БЖIЙ (Іисусъ Христосъ Сынъ Божiй-Jesus Christ Son of God), NИКА-from the Greek verb nikē - conquest. This word at the base of the cross is reminiscent of the Appearance of the Cross with the inscription "In this sign thou shalt conquer" before the Emperor Constantine to signify the triumph of Christ's over death and hell, Skull at the base of the Cross represents the ashes of Adam, whose sins were washed away with blood of Christ on Golgotha.
*Let God arise, and let His enemies be scattered; and let those who hate Him flee from His face. As smoke vanishes, let them vanish; and as wax melts from the presence of fire, so let the demons perish from the presence of those who love God and who sign themselves with the Sign of the Cross and say with gladness: Hail, most precious and life-giving Cross of the Lord, for Thou drivest away the demons by the power of our Lord Jesus Christ Who was crucified on thee, went down to hell and trampled on the power of the devil, and gave us thee, His honorable Cross, for driving away all enemies. O most precious and life-giving Cross of the Lord, help me with our holy Lady, the Virgin Theotokos, and with all the Saints throughout the ages. Amen.
