Both crosses in this catalog are handcrafted in the Holy Land using the pruned branches of the olive trees that grow on the hills of both Bethlehem and Jerusalem. The wood is referred to as “Olive Wood” by the locals in the West Bank.
This smaller cross is often referred to as a “palm cross” because it fits so perfectly in the palm of your hand. All the edges are rounded and smooth which makes it comfortable to hold in your hand. Also, because of its small size it is convenient to carry in your pocket or handbag or keep near your dashboard in a car. It would be especially comforting as a gift for someone who is ill and perhaps bedridden or in hospice care. size is 2 in. x 4 in.
