Gate of Heaven - Stone and Bronze

Gate of Heaven - Stone and Bronze

275.00

An extraordinary Gate of Heaven medal is suspended just behind the crucifix of this rosary. The two pieces complement one another very well.

The crucifix is beautiful without being overly ornate, and substantial without being overly heavy. At each end of the cross is the symbol of the dogwood flower.

In the opening of the large medal is a lovely image of Our Lady. The image appears to have been based on Bartolome Esteban Murillo's 17th century painting of the Immaculate Conception. The medal is adorned with shamrocks and flowers.

The Gate of Heaven and the Immaculate Conception are also represented on the rosary center.

All three metal pieces are solid bronze, cast by hand from vintage originals.

The Pater beads of the rosary are silverleaf jasper, enclosed in brass caps. The Aves are pale stone. Among all these are beads of silver lined glass and matte glass.

The connecting rings are solid bronze and brass.
