Although the artist is unknown, this cross is well-known as the one beneath which St. Francis was praying when the Lord commissioned him to rebuild the Church. More of an icon than a cross, it artistically features images of people who bring special meaning to the cross itself.

The five major witnesses to Christ’s crucifixion: Mother Mary, St. John the Beloved, Mary Magdalene, Mary mother of James, and the Centurion.

Also shown are minor witnesses - angels, patron saints, apostles. At top is an image of the resurrected Jesus surrounded by angels.

The original San Damiano cross hangs in the Santa Chiara (St. Claire) Church in Assisi, Italy. This gorgeous replica is hand painted and made of a resin-stone mix. Measures 17.75"H 13.25"W 1.5"D.
