A million prayers and petitions went through this genuine artifact which is around a century old, give or take a generation. It has a beautiful patina.

A pectoral crucifix is one that is worn, for life, on the chest (over the pectoral muscles) of a nun or a priest. The smiling skull and the bones represent Adam and Eve, who are now happy because their original sin is redeemed by the sacrifice of Christ on the cross. It is 3-1/4" long and 1-1/2" wide.

The real mystery is how these rare crosses occasionally cross my path, since they are meant to be buried with their owner…grave robbers perhaps. This one, and another I possess, were sold to me by a smiling, toothless woman at a flea market, who said she found them in the attic of an old sea captain’s house she cleaned out in Searsport, Maine.
