I expect a lot of comments on this item. Having a chat with a customer who wanted something to remind him to say a prayer as he started his day. We talked about the Celts and Romans who wrote both prayers and curses on copper and lead sheets and rolled them up and put them in holy places.We thought of Jewish mazzuzas affixed to door frames..it actually means threshold or door post.That lead to the prayer inside which turns out to be one that Jesus would have said, called the Shema...basically the first commandment,,,Hear o Israel, the Lord is our God,the Lord is one.
So, punched into a piece of copper I put Shema Israel, Adoni Elohenyu, Adoni Ekhad. .. pretty much the prayer said for almost 3000 years.Good enough for a Jewish kid named Jesus, it's good enough for me.
One piece copper scroll. With hand stamped prayer.....$ 35.00. Amen
Since the times of the Apostles, the rooster has been a symbol of Christianity, to the Celts it was a holy animal.
It remains a symbol of God's grace to sinners.
Taken from Colonial weathercock, it measures about 12 1/2 wide by 15 tall and has a hanging loop on the back.
reproduced in heavy copper..........$70.00
