This is a unique and unusual First Communion cross. The First Communion cross is made of wood and hand painted in El Salvador. The 5 inch high cross has a dove at the top, a church at the bottom, wheat and grapes which are the symbols of the bread and wine of Communion, and a chalice in the very center of the cross thus presenting many Christian symbols on the face of the cross. This attractive cross is done in primary colors so is quite vibrant looking and will add not only a spiritual touch but a dramatic sign of Communion to the wall of the room of a child. The cross is called the "Tree of Life" cross and you can see why with all the symbols of spirituality and Communion which are found on the cross and the idea of the new life the child will be receiving when the child receives Christ in First Communion. This cross may be especially attractive for the child in a family with ties in South America since the lovely design and colors are done in El Salvador. This delightful First Communion cross comes ready to hang.
