This is our stunning Saint Mark the Evangelist Plaque. St. Mark (in German, St. Markus) was an apostle of Jesus and one of the Four Evangelists. This the perfect gift for the feast day of St. Mark on April 25th. This bronze plaque is also a wonderful gift for first communion, a birthday, confirmation, and Christmas (a great stocking stuffer!).
A Wall Plaque in Three Sizes
This plaque comes in three sizes: small (p103k, 2 x 1.6 inches), medium (p80m, 3.75 x 3 inches), and large (p126g, 7.9 x 6.3 inches). This solid bronze plaque hangs easily on any wall in the office or at home. This plaque – conceived and cast in Germany by a master bronzesmith – is a great gift for that special “Mark” in your life!
St. Mark – the Lion of God
Saint Mark is depicted on this bronze plaque writing his Gospel. The lion – the symbol of the Gospel of Mark – stands in the lower left corner of the plaque. Christian tradition has long associated each the four “living creatures” standing around the throne of God (Revelation 4:7) with the four Evangelists: the human (angel) with St. Matthew, the lion with St. Mark, the ox with St. Luke, and the eagle with St. John. This solid bronze plaque also depicts the baptism of Jesus by John (Mark 1:9-11) in the top right corner. The bottom right corner depicts the apostles – now commissioned by the Risen Christ (Mark 16:20) – going forth to proclaim the Good News. A most fitting gift for a birthday, name day, first communion or confirmation.
