Hand Carved Crucifix from Ukraine
BACK IN STOCK! Hand carved in wood by artisans in Ukraine, this cross is sent to us by our friend Kyrylo Cherniak 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 mitered 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 February 14, 2023: 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 $2,000 since the Russian invasion of Ukraine 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're in touch with Kyrylo as often as he can write and the biggest problem he and his fellow citizens face right now, he says, is limited power. Generators are extremely expensive.
We'll continue to send financial support to Kyrylo as best we can. 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 purchasing what they make. When you purchase these items, too, it translates to real support for real people who are just trying to make a living and to make the best of a terrible situation. We thank you immensely.
