The Upper Room Cross is an exquisitely detailed solid bronze wall cross and a superb Christian gift. Its three-dimensional quality makes it a living testimony to the Last Supper.
A Cross of Superb Quality
Measuring 3.4 inches high and 2.75 inches wide, the Upper Room Cross has an eyelet at the top which makes it easy to hang on the wall or to use as a pectoral cross in liturgical celebrations. This cross was created by a master bronzesmith in Germany.
This is a cross of impressive Old World artistry made of the highest-quality material available.
The Last Supper in the Upper Room
On the night before he died, Jesus celebrated the Passover (the Feast of Unleavened Bread) one last time in an “upper room” (Luke 22:12). This solid bronze cross depicts the events of that night compactly and powerfully: Jesus blessing the bread and cup, eleven of the disciples in rapt attention, and (in the bottom left corner of the cross) the twelfth disciple, Judas, clutching his bag of money. This Last Supper Cross is the perfect gift for anyone who partakes of the Body and Blood of Christ in the Eucharist, in remembrance of Him.
