This chip carved cross is made of aspen and red oak (edges and base). It is finished with a satin polyurathane. The front shows a traditional Scandinavian pattern, with three rosettes. On the back is carved what Jesus said were the two greatest commandments: Matt 22:37 Jesus replied: Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind." and Matt 22:39 "And the second is like it: Love your neighbor as yourself."
