With their unerring sense of style, Russian silversmiths created this body cross that appeals to the Orthodox believers. The pendant carries numerous biblical symbols. The circle behind the cross represents the crown of thorns that the Roman legionnaires placed on the head of Jesus and symbolizes an Eternal Life. The acronym 'INЦI' ('INRI') represents the inscription in Russian 'Іисусъ Назарянинъ, Царь Іудейскій' (Latin: 'Iēsus Nazarēnus, Rēx Iūdaeōrum' or 'Jesus the Nazarene, King of the Jews') placed atop the cross as ordered by the Roman prefect of Judaea Pontius Pilate. The acronym 'IC XC' ('Іисусъ Христосъ') is Russian for 'Jesus Christ'), and a symbolically rendered Skull at the base of the Cross symbolizes the ashes of Adam, the First Man and progenitor of the Human Race. The reverse of this cross bears 'Спаси и Cохрани' (Russian for 'Protect and Save' [me, oh my God]) to protect from demonic attacks and dissolve negative energy. This body cross is perfect for ladies and children.
