Wedding, Covenant Cross
Solid Bronze Cross
2.63 x 2.63 inches
Made in Germany
The powerful symbolism of this elegant bronze cross makes it a favorite among our customers. In the center of the cross, the wedding bands overlap in an openwork design, representing the union of marriage. Beyond this, the bands overlap in a way that evokes “∞”, the symbol for eternity reminding us that marriage is not a temporal matter but a union of two eternal souls (and families) for eternity. Finally, the evocation of the infinity symbol is important in that it is comprised of the two bands coming together to form one symbol. This has echoes in Genesis 2:22-24 – “For this reason a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife, and they shall become one flesh.”
Of course, the most important part of this piece of Christian art is the cross itself – a reminder that the power of a marriage derives largely from the extent to which it is rooted in the examples of Christ’s overflowing love.
The Covenant Cross is made of solid bronze, with an openwork design of the overlapping bands in the middle. Its compact size makes it perfect for hanging in any room in the house. Many of our customers opt to frame the piece after ordering it – which we highly recommend. The symmetrical nature of the Covenant Cross lends itself well to being framed, especially in a shadowbox frame. Regardless of how it is given, the Covenant Cross is surely a wedding gift that will be cherished for a lifetime as reminder of the power of love, human and divine.
