The Cross is the highest symbol for the Orthodox faith, because the salvation of the world and all people was accomplished by Jesus Christ on the Cross. For all believers, the Cross is a companion in our lives and prayers. It is the symbol that brings us closer to Jesus Christ. You can find many types of crosses, with elaborate or simpler designs, made with reverence by the monks of Mount Athos. Fine crucifixes, prayer ropes for the neck, wooden and silver-plated crosses are some of the handicrafts you can find in our collection.
