On fire with divine and eternal love, Jesus' wounded heart centers this beautiful cross. A symbol of Christ's love for man, the Sacred Heart was first venerated in 11th-century monasteries. Devotion to the Sacred Heart is devotion to Jesus himself. Alejandro de Esesarte creates this elegant wall sculpture and paints it by hand with a vintage crackled finish.
Because each piece is individually handcrafted and painted, size and color could vary slightly.

"I am on the autism spectrum. Because of my ASD, I could not hold a job very long. I am totally isolated from people. So I was forced to try to make my own way in order to survive. My only interactions are those needed to make and sell my art. I am obsessed with perfection and beauty, quality and detail in my metal sculptures. Novica found me at a trade show and took me out of poverty. Thanks to my artistic success, I now have economic independence and total liberty. A special thanks to those who purchase my designs. Thank you for giving me my identity and value."

"Can't decide where to put it."
I was sorry to see that the sacred heart was not as I would recognize The crown was more like horns rather than a crown on sacred heart. I will get someone to correct the image. I was expecting better. The rods creating the cross were very white, and no shadowing for it to go along with the very nice cut out or the back ground. The photo shows more gold in the paint, not stark white, Needs more gold paint.
