This Murano Glass Crucifix wall sculpture represents the combination of ancient artistic tradition of Murano Glass and the prominence that Venetians have always given to the religious and spiritual aspects of their lives. This Murano Crucifix is handmade using famous Murano Glass Millefiori technique, where hundreds of tiny mosaic glass pieces are first made by hand and then fused together for a unique artistic look.
This authentic Murano Glass Crucifix was created by the skilled Murano artisans, whose family lineage goes back to the prominent Venetian glass masters of the centuries past. A dramatic, spiritual piece, it showcases the fusion of religious and artistic aspects that Italian artists have mastered arguably better than anyone else. This Murano Glass Crucifix also makes a unique and meaningful gift to the special people in your life for Christmas, Baptism, Wedding, First Communion, or any other fitting occasion, as it is truly a one-of-a-kind work of art.

Measurements: The Wall Crucifix measures approximately 8 inches tall and 5-1/2 inches across. This Murano glass sculpture features attached sticker proving its Murano origin, and it also comes with the certificate of authenticity.

I accidentally broke the cross I bought in Murano. This is an excellent replacement. Same style, colors and made in Italy!

Beautiful! This item is just like the photo. It arrived in one piece on a very very frigid day in the Midwest. Thank you!

Workmanship



The technique of fusing together small colored fragments of glass dates all the way back to Ancient Egypt and Rome. After the fall of Rome, having been lost for centuries, this intricate technique was reinvented by Murano glass masters in the 15th century, and given new life and worldwide fame. While this technique is called "Murrine" on Murano island, outside of Venice it was dubbed "Millefiori", or "a thousand flowers" for its resemblance to a blossoming meadow.
A Millefiori design starts with the rods of different colors, each made by stretching a blob of glass into a cane. These canes are then cut into small segments, and the segments are carefully arranged by hand into a pattern that fits within a desired shape. Finally, the resulting arrangement is put into a special furnace where the tiny glass pieces are carefully fused together in high heat, and then gradually cooled off. This is how Murano masters create their famous Millefiori pendants, earrings, cufflinks, pill boxes, paperweights and many other beautiful and unique Millefiori jewelry pieces that are instantly recognized and valued for their artistic appeal and fine craftsmanship. Enjoy your Murano Glass jewelry creation, knowing that it was carefully handmade by talented Murano Glass artisans in Venice, Italy.
