Working to provide a steady stream of work for its artisans, the Salvadoran cooperative God's Seed presents this religious wall cross. Crafted of pinewood, the cross is carefully painted by hand with the image of the Eucharist, a Christian ceremony that commemorates the Last Supper. The Holy Spirit descends from above as two hands form a gesture around the body and blood of Christ. At the bottom, a globe with people represents worldwide unity.
More than 35 people in the cooperative are able to earn a dignified income for themselves and their families. The cooperative trains many people in the community and is a very important job provider.

Luisa's work has been featured in Avianca Inflight Magazine and various local magazines including Habitat, Contrapoder, and Domingo.
The God's Seed Cooperative has received El Salvador's National Award for the Best Craft Exporter twice since its inception.
The Women's Empowerment badge is awarded to female artisans or artisan groups that are led by women.

The God's Seed Cooperative consists of many women who take care of young children.
The Eucharist hand-painted cross from El Salvador is lovely & well made. It came on time & was packaged in a manner that was secure & safe. I Immediately put it up on the wall with other crosses in my collection. Also, I appreciate the worry doll that added the perfect touch to the gift wrap. So cute! Thank you!
