This handsome Eastern Crucifix is a great gift for any man. Made of Sterling Silver and comes with a 18 inch sterling silver lite curb chain. The top line is said to represent the headboard, and the bottom, slanted line represents the footrest, wrenched loose by Jesus; writhing in intense agony. It is raised to the left side, because that was the side of the righteous criminal who said to Jesus, remember me when you come into your kingdom. This symbolizes the victory of good over evil.
