The Rex et Redemptor Crucifix is best described as a deeply textured square plaque that depicts the crucifixion. This is a unique and attention-grabbing design that makes amazing use of physical space to depict this powerful event. At about 2.2″ square, the most interesting aspect of the Rex et Redemptor Crucifix is its use of vertical space. The plaque itself, when laid flat, comes about an inch off the table, makes clever use of vertical relief to depict Christ crucified. At nearly 8 ounces (about a half pound), this is a surprisingly sturdy and poignant piece. This plaque makes a great addition to your desk at work, a way to be reminded of Christ as redeemer of the world throughout your day.
Jesus Nazareth, King of the Jews
Atop this striking crucifix plaque is the famous inscription, “INRI”. The INRI stands in as an abbreviation for the inscription in Aramaic, Greek, and Latin which was nailed to the top of Jesus’ cross by order of Pontius Pilate (John 19:19-20). This powerful plaque is a beautiful example of a Christian gift that evokes the powerful meaning of the crucifixion. While Pilate intended this inscription to be one of sneering irony, the ultimate irony is that it is beyond true – Jesus is not just king of the Jews, but the King and Redeemer of the world. Add this plaque to your devotional life, or give it to a loved one; with its hand-crafted heirloom quality design and timeless depiction of Christ, it is a gift that will be cherished for generations.
