This solid bronze Loaves and Fishes Wall Cross is a beautiful artistic celebration of Jesus’s miracle, the multiplication of the loaves and fishes. This story is told in all four Gospels (Matthew 14:16-20; 15:35-37, Mark 6:37-42, Luke 9:12-17, John 6:1-13).
What a great reminder of Jesus’s miracle in Galilee 2,000 years ago, a foreshadowing of what Christ does in every celebration of the Eucharist. This cross makes a perfect Christian gift, and is especially appropriate for a first communion.

The Ichthys (ІΧΘΥΣ): Symbol for the Christian Faith
The Ichthys, or fish, became a powerful symbol in early Christian tradition. ІΧΘΥΣ (ICHTHYS), Greek for fish, is in fact also an acronym used by the early Christians as a shorthand symbol for their faith: “Jesus Christ, Son of God, Savior.”
