One of the most iconic images of the medieval world - angels raising the victorious Cross of Christ
Angels play a key role in Byzantine Christian art, appearing on every type of artistic expression including coinage. These angels, symbolizing the victory of Christ over death, raise a striking cross between them. The bronze seal ring used to make this pendant is shield-shaped and in pristine condition despite its hundreds of years underground, until it was discovered decades ago. It is wonderful to see such a classic expression of medieval Byzantine art and faith.

Special Note: "Victory comes on Swift Wings:" angels have been associated with victory since ancient times.

The bronze seal ring is sturdy and almost perfect - and it gives a clear, striking impression.
