Iconographic Processional Cross

Our iconographic cross is inspired by examples from Old Russia and Romanesque Europe. The board is 1.5 inches thick with recesses (kovchegs) carved into the front. It is gessoed on all sides and painted by a master iconographer. The tall and elegant shaft is turned from yellow birch and has a hand- rubbed oil finish. The cross is 24" tall and 19.5" wide, large enough to make a dramatic impact in both indoor and outdoor processions. The shaft is 60" tall, with comfortable hand supports.

The example shown here is painted by Father Andrew Tregubov. It has a gilded front and back and vibrant red edges. The icons and inscription on the back are elegant and finely detailed. Other iconographers can be requested as well, or the cross can be ordered unpainted if you prefer to handle the iconography on your own.

Price unpainted: $650. Contact us for a quote on a painted cross.
