Jeweled Steel Ichthus Fish In Cross 5", 8" or 12"
Item Number: FI5
Ichthus is the Greek word for fish and has been used by early Christians as a symbol of their faith. IXOYE is an acronym meaning "Jesus Christ God's Son is Savior". When you display this radiantly colored symbol of your faith, let it remind you of the history of Christianity. It existed Before Christ came and it extends into our lives today and will go on forever.
The cross you receive is handcrafted and truly a one-of-a-kind work of art. What may seem like an imperfection is in fact a unique characteristic of that cross.
This Texan artisan relates his work to a jeweler's artistic craftsmanship. What he does with steel is what a jeweler does with stones. The metal is polished and textured for a unique design. The beautiful colors are achieved using only the heat from a blow torch, a process that Broussard calls flame-painting. When the right amount of pressure and heat are applied the beauty in the metal is revealed. When displayed, with the proper lighting, these crosses can be enjoyed for years to come.
