Wooden Tau Cross

1” High - 24” Cotton Cord

This handmade Olive Wood Tau Pendant is carved in Assisi, Italy. 

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 designated as the distinctive sign of the Franciscan Order.
