Medieval Wall Cross
One of the most distinctive features of medieval art is the use of the cross as a symbol of Christianity. The cross, which represents the crucifixion of Jesus Christ, was often depicted in various forms and styles. One of the most elaborate and ornate types of crosses was the wall cross on cross, which consisted of a large cross with a smaller cross on top, creating a cross-shaped frame decorated with intricate patterns and motifs. One of the most common motifs was the fleur de lis, a stylized lily that symbolized purity, royalty, and the Holy Trinity. The fleur de lis was often placed at the center of the cross, or along its arms and edges. The wall cross with fleur de lis was a powerful and elegant expression of medieval faith and artistry. Constructed of iron with gold highlights, this cross measures approximately 11″H x 8″W.
