“Go out and stand on the mountain in the presence of the Lord, for the Lord is about to pass by.”
— 1 Kings 19: 11

The extraordinarily graceful Tau crucifix of this chaplet is solid bronze. The Tau cross is known as the Anticipatory Cross — early Christians considered that its appearance in scripture prefigured the coming of Christ.

The large Pater bead is a sphere of picture jasper, set between caps and beads of solid brass.

The stone Aves are bronzite, separated by beads of matte glass.
