Greek Cross, Hammered

Regular price $42.95 Sale

The Greek Cross, with arms of equal length, is the most ancient cross, predating the Latin cross. In Christian mythology, the four equal arms point in the four directions of the earth, representing the spread of the gospel or the four platonic elements (earth, air, water, and fire). Its origins are not Christian, but older, found in many cities in Mesopotamia.

Sterling silver, two sizes: medium 1 1/2" and small 1", with a 30" fine black leather cord
