Circular Seal with a Picture of Christ

Post  Admin on Tue Feb 23, 2010 9:56 am


A round stone seal bearing a picture of Christ, with a halo of light around his head formed of double rings. The face is shown in detail with the eyes, nose, hair and beard. The clothing is clearly shown.

There are two vine leaves round the figure of Christ, to symbolize the grape vine. For Christ had given himself the title: "I am the vine, you are the branches: . . " (John: 15:5)

The seal was used in the church to stamp objects to bless them.
