An impeccable golden gift for the Orthodox baptism. This Ukrainian style Orthodox cross pendant embraces numerous symbols from the Holy Scriptures, such as symbolically rendered crossbars crowned with the trefoil to symbolize the Holy Trinity and the Resurrection, the inscription 'INЦI' (Latin: 'INRI') meaning 'Іисусъ Назарянинъ, Царь Іудейскій' (Russian for 'Jesus the Nazarene, King of the Jews' / Latin: 'Iēsus Nazarēnus, Rēx Iūdaeōrum'), nailed atop the cross as ordered by the Roman prefect of Judaea Pontius Pilate, and the acronym 'IC XC' ('Іисусъ Христосъ' / Russian for 'Jesus Christ'). The Skull symbolizes the ashes of Adam, the First Man, and the Progenitor of the Human Race. According to a legend, the skull at the base of the Cross is that of Adam and the blood shed by Christ over it had cleansed the humankind of sin and brought it salvation. The reverse of the cross features an embossed inscription that reads 'Спаси и Сохрани' (Russian for 'Protect and Save' [me, oh my God]) to ward off the evil eye and dissolve negative energy.
