SHROUDED CROSS STRIPED ROYAL COLORS SOLD
2009
$48
SOLD
The Shrouded Cross is draped with a burial cloth to signify the message of the crucifix, Christ's resurrection, and the hope of new life for believers.

It is also known as a Draped Cross.

I used colors of royalty (blue, purple, gold) for this shroud to signify the reign of our Risen Lord, Jesus Christ.

In most traditions, the sanctuary cross is draped in color during Lent (purple), Good Friday (black), and Easter (white). Some churches leave white on the cross through Eastertide, drape the cross in red for Pentecost Sunday, and then leave the cross undraped until the beginning of Lent the next year.
