While most stores offer print glued on wood, Andcross is a place to buy outstanding work of art crafted by loving hands and talented people. I have always loved this Icon of John Baptist and when I came across this piece, I didn’t think twice and ordered one for myself. This set came with two small icons of Virgin Mary and Jesus Christ, which became a perfect addition to the bedroom. Now my wife and I are surrounded by the Divine Protection of Heaven!

Thank you for this set: the big icon of St. John, the patron saint of my son, went to his bedroom. Two small icons are placed on the bedhead in our bedroom with my wife. What a blessing it is to receive such an amazing window into the life of Saints and to have Them grace our home. All icons are absolutely beautiful and will be cherished by our family for years.
