Dappled Things - Tau Crucifix

Dappled Things - Tau Crucifix


"Glory be to God for dappled things ...All things counter, original, spare, strange..."

— Gerard Manley Hopkins, Pied Beauty

The Aves of this chaplet are wildly speckled, semi-translucent stone, with a beautiful shape something like flattened pears.

The Pater is smooth smoky quartz. It is pale tan in color, but because it's translucent, its apparent color varies.

The extraordinarily graceful Tau crucifix is solid bronze, hand-cast from a vintage original.

Among the prayer beads are beads of solid brass and matte glass.

Crucifix: 1.25"
Pater: about 10mm round
Aves: about 10mm tall and wide, about 5mm thick
Length: about 5.75" from the top of the loop to the bottom of the crucifix
