The ancient "IC XC NIKA" cross is very common in Eastern Christianity. An abbreviation that means "Jesus Christ conquers", the pattern is stamped on the holy bread used for the Eucharist, and is frequently used in every kind of decoration.
Let this image be a reminder of the confessors and martyrs of the Faith—both ancient and modern—and a reminder that we must faithfully bear our own cross.

Having purchased this icon (and others) as a housewarming gift , I knew I wanted to have it myself---and now it hangs over the head of my bed for everyone to see as they enter the room.

I love this Icon. I ordered it in a 3x3 size and it is lovely ~ goes
wonderfully in a grouping of other favorite Icons.

The catacomb cross says it all with its simple, powerful message.
It is well made and looks perfect over our doorway.

This little cross is an accent to our home. It reflects the majesty in our home as I'm sure it did centuries ago in the catacombs. Its simplicity is its beauty.
