To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
This is a nice olive wood wood cross that came with an authenticity card to show this item came from the holy land in Israel. One feature that is not very clearly shown on the current picture is the edges on the front side (Jesus side) of the cross are not routed in a uniform bevel edge, but in a wavey pattern which I personally don't like but it's not terrible. I'll keep the cross because I like the Olive Wood colors, but would have liked an option to purchase a cross that has even/uniformly routed edges. Just my personal preference. But the cross itself is solid and appears well made. Top rear has a small hole that is only half deep, so it's ready to be hung using a small nail and the nail head is hidden when mounted.
I bought this cross "used," so I expected there to be some marks or blemishes on the cross. The blemishes are prominent and quite noticeable, but I will be able to accept it (maybe do my own work to reduce the severity of the blemishes). Overall, a nice piece.
Very nice, but you can tell it was made quickly. I notice the little things like something a little crooked. I have no idea what the sample is in this cross. But it is nice to hang in my kid's bedroom.
It's well made, but smaller than I expected. Pay close attention to dimensions before purchase. I was hoping to receive it with postage and wrapping from the Holy Land as other reviewers mentioned, but mine came only with a simple Lord's prayer leaflet and bubble wrapped, with the shipment coming from within the US. I'm not using it over a bed as I'd planned due to the size, but it has made a nice addition to my home altar.
Crucifixes arrived quickly and the wood was nice. I ordered five of them and four arrived with Jesus having become unglued in the shipping process. I had to do a quick supper glue job. I had read this was an issue with others in the reviews but decided the price made up for this small inconvenience.
