Medieval Christ Victorious Angels & Cross Fine Silver Wax Seal Pendant | Seal Date & Origin: 1100 AD, Byzantine Empire #S3376

Size Guide

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.
