Hand Carved Crucifix from Ukraine
Hand carved in wood by artisans in Ukraine, this cross is sent to us by our friend Kyrylo in Lviv, in western Ukraine. We are doing what we can right now to support the artisans there, and purchasing these pieces from them feels to us like the best way we can make a positive impact on the folks who live there.
Made of two pieces of wood joined together at the crux. The top surface of the crucifix is carved by hand. About 9" tall x 4 1/2" wide. There is a hole in the back for hanging on a nail. No two are alike. Handmade in Ukraine.
Update August 20, 2022: THANK YOU for your support of our fundraising efforts on behalf of our friend Kyrylo Cherniak and the Ukrainian artisans he works with! Between our purchases of these artisan goods and your transactional support in purchasing them, we were able to send over $1,000 this past spring to Kyrylo in support of those artisans and in support of Kyrylo's efforts in helping his fellow citizens of Lviv and other parts of Ukraine in their time of crisis. We have been trying to reach Kyrylo over the summer, but so far we have not heard back. It's not unusual for him to take a long time to write back, so we remain hopeful that he is safe. When we do hear from Kyrylo, we will order more of these handmade items from him. As long as the artisans there are making things and as long as Kyrylo can send them our way, we can continue to support them by buying what they make.
