Tau Wall Cross

6” High - Olive Wood

This beautifully designed Tau Cross, carved from olive wood, is perfect as a wall hanging in the home. This unique carving is handcrafted in Italy. Each piece has been blessed by the Franciscan Friars of Holy Name Province before shipping.

The Tau is an ancient representation of the cross.  It is also the last letter of the Hebrew alphabet and is thought to be the sign with which Ezekiel marked those chosen by God (Ex 9:4). St. Francis loved the meaning of the Tau so much he signed his letters with this symbol.  When a Franciscan friar wears a habit and stands with his hands outstretched, he becomes a Tau, a living Tau.  The Tau is a distinctive Franciscan symbol.

Made in Assisi.
