Description

XI –XIII centuries, Ani, bronze

According to the ceremonial rite, each cross used in religious worship must be revered, blessed and anointed in five places: the centre and the four arms, i.e. the Eye, the Crown, the Stem, the Right Arm and the Left Arm. Usually a precious stone or a stone of little value, occasionally a relic, is placed in the Eye. The Eye may be interpreted as the source of emanation and origination, since the arms radiate from the centre (according to Archbishop Malachia Ormanian).
