Russian goldsmiths, with their unerring sense of style, have crafted this body cross to make the statement of faith for the Orthodox believers. The cross embraces a miniature composition of the crucified Jesus and another significant symbols of faith: 'ЦРЬ СЛВЫ' - Царь Славы' (Russian for 'The King of Glory'), 'IC XC' signifying 'Іисусъ Христосъ' (Russian for 'Jesus Christ'), acronym 'МЛРБ' means 'Место лобно рай бысть' (Russian for 'Calvary turn paradise'). 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 bears the inscription 'Спаси и Сохрани' (Russian for 'Protect and Save' [me, oh my God]) for protection from demonic attacks and negative energy. The size and design of this cross make it equally suitable for women and men.
