OVERALL IMPRESSION

If you’ve followed some of my personal posts through the Catholic Sistas social media platforms and maybe even my own personal account, you know how much I enjoy decorating my home. As an introvert and homebody, I find that being at home is only as peaceful as I make it. With nine family members, though, a lot of the decor I choose has to be either sturdy, placed high, or tough enough to withstand being put to the test by the endless stream of toddler and threenager shenanigans. 😉

That said, when Holy Art, a company based out of the Italy and sells exclusively online around the world to customers like me and you, approached me to consider a review of their products, I was intrigued. I was intrigued because I am a huge fan of high quality religious products to begin with, having had to replace many items over the years due to…yep, the endless stream of toddler and threenager shenanigans.

I found myself perusing the website for probably far longer than I should have, lol, but I was pleasantly surprised by the uniqueness of their products. One product finally caught my eye and I thought, ok, this is it. I love crucifixes around the house, but I like them to look different. They should be detailed enough to call to mind the sacrifice Christ made for us on the Cross. The Stele Model – Golden Crucifix did just that. But ordering it online and seeing it in person would be two very different experiences. 

The product shipped “across the pond” far quicker than I expected! When I opened it, it was delicately packed, and included with it some details such as being 100% hand-crafted in Loppiano, which is near Florence, Italy, by a company called Ceramiche Centro Ave. It is made from fire clay and, as you can see from the photos, the attention to detail is stunning. Though we have a wooden Tau cross over our bed, I decided to place this crucifix on the wall over my nightstand. If you haven’t already been to their website, this is a good one to bookmark. So many companies sell mass produced items, many cheaply made in China. I doubly appreciate that this company is devoted to not just hand-made custom items – and it’s a total hat tip to the Catholic artisan movement. My suggestion to you? Visit their site and place your order – you won’t be disappointed, friend.
