Olive Wood Saint Benedict Bead Rosary and Cross
Handmade in the Holy Land, this olive wood Saint Benedict bead rosary and cross is a stunning display of our talented craftsmen, revealing slightly larger rosary beads in a slightly darker tone of olive wood.
Fifty-three round olive wood beads have been carefully honed and matched to form this unique rosary, with six silver tone round stations and a large centerpiece medal. The Saint Benedict stations and medal are stamped on both sides; one side carries the image of Saint Benedict while the second side depicts the looped Fleurie Cross, all strung using the ancient knotting technique of wrapping rope around a cord. We topped off the entire showpiece with a stunning statement crucifix and cross. Handmade in the Holy Land the large olive wood cross is carved with designed points and metal inlay. A Saint Benedict medal is inlaid behind Christ’s head of the crucifix. In Christianity, patron saint rosaries offer a spiritual protection against evil through prayer.
This masterful piece is one of our many varieties of rosaries for all styles. If you or a Christian friend or family member favor a refined rustic look or a heavier, natural masculine style of rosary this is the gift for you. The silver tones contrast against the darker wood and cord with reflective light and make a strong statement about the belief of the wearer.
