This detailed piece also features a removable lid to view the tablet, rod, and manna within. Every symbol and glyph on this sculptural box has specific scriptural references to the Ark of the Covenant. This museum-quality work is sculpted and hand-painted to the best historic specifications scholars have discovered about the actual ark. Rich with the colors of an Egyptian palette, this collectible work of art opens to hold your treasures. Commandments are said to have been kept in an ornate box much like this sculptural interpretation of an 18th-century drawing, along with Aaron‘s rod, a staff endowed with miraculous power, and a pot of manna, an edible substance that God provided to the Israelites following the Exodus. In the Bible and Torah, God provides Moses detailed instructions for how to build the Arc including that it should be gilded with gold and covered with 2 golden cherubim, the Arc is then to be covered with a veil. Complete with Guardian Cherubim and ornate embellishments. The Ark of the Covenant is described in the Bible as a holy container where the 10 Commandments and other holy Israelite objects are held. According to the Bible, Yahweh commanded the ark be built when Moses had a prophetic vision at Sinai (Exodus 25:9-10).

Some people believe the Ark contained Aaron’s Rod, a jar of Manna, and the first Torah Scroll written by Moses, based on their reading of Book of Exodus, Book of Numbers, and the Letter to the Hebrews. The first of the Books of Kings says that during the time of King Solomon, the Ark held only the Ten Commandments. The Hebrew word aron is used in the Bible to designate any type of ark or chest, for any purpose (Genesis 50:26; 2 Kings 12:9, 10). The Ark of the Covenant is distinguished from all others by such titles as “Ark of God” (1 Samuel 3:3), “Ark of the Covenant” (Josh 3:6; Hebrews 9:4), “Ark of the Testimony” (Ex. 25:22). The Ark (aron kodesh in Hebrew meaning holy cupboard) is a raised cupboard found in Jewish Synagogues which contains the Holy Torah scrolls. These are all written by hand and can take years to make. It is always on the wall of the Synagogue which faces towards Jerusalem. When the Ark is opened and the Torah removed for reading everyone stands in respect of God. During some prayers and services the Ark doors an inner curtain (parochet) are kept open. The Bible describes the Ark as made of acacia or shittah-tree wood. It was a cubit and a half broad and high, and 2 and a half cubits long (about 130 cm × 78 cm × 78 cm or 4.29 feet × 2.57 feet × 2.57 feet, for Egyptian royal cubit was most likely used). The Ark was covered all over with the purest gold.

The 10 Commandments of God:

  • I am the Lord your God. You shall not have strange gods before me. You shall not make to thyself any graven thing; nor the likeness of anything that is in heaven above, or in the earth beneath, nor of those things that are in the waters under the earth. You shall not adore them nor serve them;
  • You shall not take the name of the Lord your God in vain;
  • Remember to keep holy the Sabbath day;
  • Honor your father and your mother;
  • You shall not kill;
  • You shall not commit adultery;
  • You shall not steal;
  • You shall not bear false witness against your neighbor;
  • You shall not covet your neighbor’s wife;
  • You shall not covet your neighbor’s goods.

Angelic Mary “Mother of Jesus” Bust Statue

Angelic Mary Bust Statue hand-cast using real crushed stone bonded with high quality designer resin and hand-finished by skilled artisans. Imaginatively created with one-of-a-kind details, from traditional to modern, this bust will enhance any environment in your home. Painted and sculpted by countless artists over the years, the sweetly pious Angelica Maria / Angelic Mary is inspired by a painting by Fra Filippo Lippi. History tells us he convinced a convent to allow him to paint a novice nun as the Holy Mother, then persuaded the maiden to run away with him to the shame of her family and her order. Amidst this dramatic tale of stolen love, the Virgin’s beauty is epitomized from her demurely downcast eyes to the gown draped across her softly curved shoulders. This quality designer resin replica is finished in a black bronze hue highlighted with gold accents to bring out each stunning detail. According to the Gospels of Matthew and Luke in the New Testament, Mary was a first-century Jewish woman of Nazareth, the wife of Joseph, and the mother of Jesus. Both the New Testament and the Quran describe Mary as a virgin. According to Christian theology, Mary conceived Jesus through the Holy Spirit while still a virgin, and accompanied Joseph to Bethlehem, where Jesus was born.

Mary has been venerated since early Christianity, and is considered by millions to be the holiest and greatest saint because of her extraordinary virtues as seen at the Annunciation by the Archangel Gabriel. She is said to have miraculously appeared to believers many times over the centuries. The Eastern and Oriental Orthodox, Catholic, Anglican, and Lutheran churches believe that Mary, as mother of Jesus, is the Theotokos (Mother of God). There is significant diversity in the Marian beliefs and devotional practices of major Christian traditions. The Catholic Church holds distinctive Marian dogmas, namely her status as the Mother of God, her Immaculate Conception, her perpetual virginity, and her Assumption into Heaven. Many Protestants minimize Mary’s role within Christianity, basing their argument on the alleged lack of biblical support for any beliefs other than the virgin birth. Mary also has the highest position in Islam among all women. She is mentioned in the Quran more often than in the Bible, where 2 of the longer chapters of the Quran are named after her and her family. According to Catholic and Eastern Christian teachings, at the end of her earthly life, God raised Mary’s body into heaven. This is known in the Christian West as the Assumption of Mary, and in the East as the Dormition of the Mother of God. Angelic Mary “Mother of Jesus” Bust Statue measures: 7 inches / 18 cm x 11 inches / 28 cm x 17 inches / 43 cm.

Eve Holding Apple with Coiling Serpent Statue

This Eve with Coiling Serpent Statue is beautifully created in cold cast bronze, a process of mixing bronze powder with resin giving it a stunning solid metal appearance. Hand detailed with red and green colored accents giving to Eve and to the Serpent a visually exciting look. Depicts a bare Eve as she contemplates eating the forbidden fruit and being led astray by the serpent as it coils around her, enticing her to take a bite. You will not certainly die, says the serpent, but Eve knows to be wary the temptation of the forbidden fruit. Designed by world-famous artist James Ryman, this attractive statue depicts a bare Eve, standing in the garden, holding a red apple in her hand as the serpent coils itself up her body, enticing her to eat it, whispering temptations as she gazes into its eyes. Serpents are referred to in both the Hebrew Bible and the Christian New Testament. The symbol of a serpent or snake played important roles in religious and cultural life of ancient Egypt, Canaan, Mesopotamia and Greece. The serpent was a symbol of evil power and chaos from the underworld as well as a symbol of fertility, life and healing. Nāhāš, Hebrew for “snake“, is also associated with divination, including the verb form meaning “to practice divination or fortune-telling“.

Nāhāš occurs in the Torah to identify the serpent in the Garden of Eden. Throughout the Hebrew Bible, it is also used in conjunction with Seraph to describe vicious serpents in the wilderness. The Tannin, a dragon monster, also occurs throughout the Hebrew Bible. In the Book of Exodus, the staves of Moses and Aaron are turned into serpents, a Nāhāš for Moses, a Tannin for Aaron. In the New Testament, the Book of Revelation makes use of ancient serpent and the Dragon several times to identify Satan or the Devil (Rev 12:9; 20:2). The serpent is most often identified with the hubristic Satan, and sometimes with Lilith. The story of the Garden of Eden and the fall of man represents a tradition among the Abrahamic religions, with a presentation more or less symbolical of certain moral and religious truths. In the Hebrew Bible, the Book of Genesis refers to a serpent who triggered the expulsion of Adam and Eve from the Garden in Eden (Gen 3:1-20). Serpent is also used to describe sea monsters. Examples of these identifications are in the Book of Isaiah where a reference is made to a serpent-like dragon named Leviathan (Isaiah 27:1), and in the Book of Amos where a serpent resides at the bottom of the sea (Amos 9:3).

Serpent figuratively describes biblical places such as Egypt (Jer 46:22), and the City of Dan (Gen 49:17). The prophet Jeremiah also compares the King of Babylon to a serpent (Jer 51:34). Serpent occurs in the Book of Revelation as the “ancient serpent” or “old serpent” used to describe “the dragon“, Satan the Adversary, who is the devil. This serpent is depicted as a red 7-headed dragon having 10 horns, each housed with a diadem. The Serpent battles Michael the Archangel in a War in Heaven which results in this devil being cast out to the earth. While on earth, he pursues the Woman of the Apocalypse. Unable to obtain her, he wages war with the rest of her seed (Revelation 12:1-18). He who has the key to the abyss and a great chain over his hand, binds the serpent for a thousand years. The serpent is then cast into the abyss and sealed within until he is released (Revelation 20:1-3). In Christian tradition, the “ancient serpent” is commonly identified with the Genesis Serpent and as Satan. This identification redefined the Hebrew Bible’s concept of Satan (“the Adversary“, a member of the Heavenly Court acting on behalf of God to test Job’s faith), so that Satan/Serpent became a part of a divine plan stretching from Creation to Christ and the Second Coming.

Ark of The Covenant “Trinket Box” Statue

This gorgeous Ark of The Covenant Statue has fine details and is sculpted and handcrafted to the finest detail in cold cast metal (Bronze pewter) finish. The Ark of the Covenant (the Ark of the Testimony, or the Ark of God), is the most sacred relic of the Israelites. It consisted of a pure gold-covered wooden chest with an elaborate lid called the Mercy seat. The Ark is described in the Book of Exodus as containing the 2 stone tablets of the Ten Commandments. According to New Testament Book of Hebrews, it also contained Aaron’s rod and a pot of manna. The biblical account relates that, approximately one year after the Israelites‘ exodus from Egypt, the Ark was created according to the pattern given to Moses by God when the Israelites were encamped at the foot of Mount Sinai. Thereafter, the gold-plated acacia chest was carried by its staves by the Levites approximately 2,000 cubits (approximately 800 meters or 2,600 feet) in advance of the people when on the march or before the Israelite army, the host of fighting men. God spoke with Mosesfrom between the 2 cherubim” on the Ark’s cover.

According to the Book of Exodus, God instructed Moses to build the Ark during his 40-day stay upon Mount Sinai. He was shown the pattern for the tabernacle and furnishings of the Ark, and told that it would be made of wood to house the Tablets of Stone. Moses instructed Bezalel and Aholiab to construct the Ark. The Book of Exodus gives detailed instructions on how the Ark is to be constructed. It is to be 21⁄2 cubits in length, 11⁄2 in breadth, and 11⁄2 in height (approximately 131 × 79 × 79 cm or 52 × 31 × 31 in). Then it is to be gilded entirely with gold, and a crown or molding of gold is to be put around it. 4 rings of gold are to be attached to its 4 corners, 2 on each side, and through these rings staves of wood overlaid with gold for carrying the Ark are to be inserted, and these are not to be removed. A golden lid, the kapporet (translated as “mercy seat” or “cover”), which is ornamented with 2 golden cherubim, is to be placed above the Ark. The Ark is finally to be placed under a veil to conceal it. Ark of The Covenant “Trinket Box” Statue sizes: 11 inches / 28 cm x 4.5 inches / 11.5 cm x 7.5 inches / 19 cm.

Colorful Crystal Cross Statue, Religious, Christianity & Symbolic Statues, Standing Colorful Crystal Cross “for Mothers Day” Statue

Colorful Crystal Cross Statue, Religious, Christianity & Symbolic Statues, Standing Colorful Crystal Cross "for Mothers Day" Statue

Standing Colorful Crystal Cross “for Mothers Day” Statue

This expertly crafted and carefully designed Colorful Crystal Cross Statue is completely handmade, made of high quality K9 crystal. Shining more than a glass cross, it will be a beautiful addition to your spirit. The Cross, once the cruelest form of execution, yet now it is a symbol of abundant life. Crystal cross signify magic, mystery, royalty, and good judgment. It define a feeling of calm or a feeling of energy. The energies of cross have the ability to get rid us of obstacles and restore the balance into our life. Stand the elegant crystal cross on your window sill and let the light shine through to radiate God’s love throughout your home “Rainbow“. A cross is a geometrical figure consisting of 2 intersecting lines or bars, usually perpendicular to each other. The lines usually run vertically and horizontally. A cross of oblique lines, in the shape of the Latin letter X, is termed a Saltire in heraldic terminology. The Cross is a great contradiction. A simple upright post with a transverse bar used crucifixion. It’s a symbol of death, but so much more.

Death and life, hate and love, violence and peace, accusation and forgiveness, sin and purity, brokeness and wholeness, all is lost yet everything is gained, destruction and restoration, defeat and victory. Once the cruelest form of execution, yet now it is a symbol of abundant life. The cross in its various shapes and forms was a symbol of various beliefs. In pre-Christian times it was a pagan religious symbol throughout Europe and western Asia. In ancient times, the effigy of a man hanging on a cross was set up in the fields to protect the crops. The cross was even considered a male symbol of the phallic Tree of Life, thus it often appeared in conjunction with the female-genital circle or oval, to signify the sacred marriage, as in Egyptian amulet Nefer with male cross and female orb, considered as an amulet of blessedness, a charm of sexual harmony. The word cross is recorded in 11th-century Old English as cros, exclusively for the instrument of Christ’s crucifixion, replacing the native Old English word rood. The word’s history is complicated, it appears to have entered English from Old Irish, possibly via Old Norse, ultimately from the Latin crux (or its accusative crucem and its genitive crucis), “stake, cross“.

The English verb to cross arises from the noun, first used in the sense “to make the sign of the cross“, the generic meaning “to intersect” develops in the 15th century. The Latin word was, however, influenced by popular etymology by a native Germanic word reconstructed as krukjo (English crook, Old English crycce, Old Norse krokr, Old High German krucka). This word, by conflation with Latin crux, gave rise to Old French crocier (modern French crosse), the term for a shepherd’s crook, adopted in English as crosier. Latin crux referred to the gibbet where criminals were executed, a stake or pole, with or without transom, on which the condemned were impaled or hanged, but more particularly a cross or the pole of a carriage. The derived verb cruciare means “to put to death on the cross” or, more frequently, “to put to the rack, to torture, torment“, especially in reference to mental troubles. In the Roman world, furca replaced crux as the name of some cross-like instruments for lethal and temporary punishment, ranging from a forked cross to a gibbet or gallows.

The field of etymology is of no help in any effort to trace a supposed original meaning of crux. A crux can be of various shapes, from a single beam used for impaling or suspending (crux simplex) to the various composite kinds of cross (crux compacta) made from more beams than one. The latter shapes include not only the traditional †-shaped cross (the crux immissa), but also the T-shaped cross (the crux commissa or tau cross), which the descriptions in antiquity of the execution cross indicate as the normal form in use at that time, and the X-shaped cross (the crux decussata or saltire). The Greek equivalent of Latin cruxstake, gibbet” is stauros, found in texts of 4 centuries or more before the gospels and always in the plural number to indicate a stake or pole. From the first century BC, it is used to indicate an instrument used in executions. The Greek word is used in descriptions in antiquity of the execution cross, which indicate that its normal shape was similar to the Greek letter tau (T). Standing Colorful Crystal Cross “for Mothers Day” Statue measures: 6.4 inches / 16 cm x 9 inches / 23 cm x 3 inches / 7.5 cm.

Wooden Santa Claus Statue, Religious, Christianity & Symbolic Statues, Santa Claus and his Woodland Friends Statue

Wooden Santa Claus and his Woodland Friends Statue

Surrounded by his Woodland Friends, this elegant windswept Wooden Santa Claus Statue evokes the wonder of nature in a subtle palette of muted tones and icy blues. Beautifully sculpted in intricate detail, this unique holiday design is unmistakable. Santa Claus, also known as Father Christmas, Saint Nicholas, Saint Nick, Kris Kringle, or simply Santa, is a legendary character originating in Eastern Christian culture who is said to bring children gifts on Christmas Eve of toys and candy or coal or nothing, depending on whether they are “naughty or good“. He is said to accomplish this with the aid of Christmas Elves, who make the toys in his workshop at the North Pole, and flying reindeers who pull his sleigh through the air. The modern character of Santa is based on traditions surrounding the historical Saint Nicholas, the English figure of Father Christmas and the Dutch figure of Sinterklaas.

Santa is generally depicted as a portly, jolly, white-bearded man, often with spectacles, wearing a red coat with white fur collar and cuffs, white-fur-cuffed red trousers, red hat with white fur, and black leather belt and boots, carrying a bag full of gifts for children. He is commonly portrayed as laughing in a way that sounds like “ho ho ho“. On the evening of Christmas Eve he gets on his sleigh pulled by flying reindeers and goes from house to house to bring presents, all kept in a huge sack, to the children. To enter the houses, he goes down from the chimney, then emerges into the fireplace, and leaves the gifts under the Christmas Tree. During the rest of the year he is involved in the construction of toys with Mrs. Claus and her elven helpers. Closely related to the representations of Santa Claus are those of the Russian character of Grandfather Frost (Ded Moroz), who brings gifts to children and is dressed in a blue coat. He is helped by his blonde Granddaughter (Sneguročka), holds a long scepter and her sleigh is pulled by 3 horses instead of reindeers. He brings the presents on December 31st and his residence is in Veliky Ustyug in Russia.

This figure is present throughout the ex-Soviet bloc and only recently, perhaps to make it uniform with Santa Claus, is he represented with a red jacket and fur boots. Much of Santa Claus iconography appears to derive from the figure of Ded Moroz, especially through his German equivalent Väterchen Frost. Due to some decidedly out of the ordinary traits of Santa’s behavior (such as the ability to deliver, in a single night, gifts to all the children of the world who believe in him by flying on a sled, to slip into chimneys and to entering through the fireplace even in houses without fireplaces, the alleged immortality and the possession of flying reindeers), his actions are also explained by the use of magic. Santa Claus and his Woodland Friends Statue sizes: 8.25 inches / 21 cm x 5.75 inches / 14.5 cm x 10.5 inches / 26.5 cm.

Santa Claus’ Good Luck Christmas Reindeers Statues

This pair of Santa Claus’s Reindeers Statues are unique and eye-catching. The detailing is amazing, especially on the face and the eyes. The eyes look so realistic. The colors pop, and with the gold undertones the reindeers look so elegant. This is an absolutely lovely pair of reindeers that are carefully detailed and painted. The different shades of blue, copper and gold with silver mirror chip insets really sparkle and catch attention. In traditional festive legend and popular culture, Santa Claus’s Reindeers are said to pull a sleigh through the night sky to help Santa Claus deliver gifts to children on Christmas Eve. The number of reindeer characters, and the names given to them vary in different versions, but those frequently cited are the 8 listed in Clement Clarke Moore‘s 1823 poem A Visit from St. Nicholas, the work that is probably responsible for the reindeer becoming popularly known: Dasher, Dancer, Prancer, Vixen, Comet, Cupid, Donner (variously spelled Dunder and Donder) and Blitzen (variously spelled Blixen and Blixem). The first reference to Santa’s sleigh being pulled by a reindeer appears in Old Santeclaus with Much Delight, an 1821 illustrated children’s poem published in New York. The names of the author and the illustrator are not known.

The poem, with 8 colored lithographic illustrations, was published by William B. Gilley as a small paperback book entitled The Children’s Friend: A New-Year’s Present, to the Little Ones from Five to Twelve. The 1823 poem by Clement C. Moore, A Visit from St. Nicholas (also known as Twas the Night Before Christmas), is largely credited for the modern Christmas lore that includes 8 named reindeers. The poem was first published in the Sentinel of Troy, New York on 23 December 1823. All 8 reindeers were named, the first 6 being Dasher, Dancer, Prancer, Vixen, Comet and Cupid, and the final 2 Dunder and Blixem (meaning thunder and lightning in colloquial New York Dutch). The relevant part of the poem reads: “More rapid than eagles his coursers they came, and he whistled, and shouted, and call’d them by name: Now! Dasher, now! Dancer, now! Prancer, and Vixen, On! Comet, on! Cupid, on! Dunder and Blixem. To the top of the porch! To the top of the wall! Now dash away! Dash away! Dash away all!”. Good Luck Christmas Reindeers Statues measures: 5.9 inches / 15 cm x 4.1 inches / 10.5 cm x 11.8 inches / 30 cm.

Immaculate Conception of Madonna Statue, Religious & Christianity Statues, Madonna Blessed Mother of The Immaculate Conception Statue

Immaculate Conception of Madonna Statue, Religious & Christianity Statues, Madonna Blessed Mother of The Immaculate Conception Statue

Madonna Blessed Mother of The Immaculate Conception Statue

Immaculate Conception of Madonna Statue with very good crafted details and color combination, features a realistic depiction of the Virgin Mary and Child Baby. The full name of this statue is The Blessed Mother of The Immaculate Conception. The Immaculate Conception is a Catholic dogma, proclaimed by Pope Pius IX on 8 December 1854 with the bull Ineffabilis Deus, which establishes how the Virgin Mary was preserved immune from original sin from the first moment of her conception, this dogma should not be confused with the virginal conception of Jesus by Mary. The dogma of the Immaculate Conception concerns original sin, for the Catholic Church, in fact, every human being is born with original sin and only the Mother of Christ was exempt from it, in view of the Messiah‘s coming and mission on Earth, God therefore pleased that the Virgin should be the sinless abode to keep the divine Son made man in her womb in a worthy and perfect way. The Catholic Church celebrates the solemnity of the Immaculate Conception of the Blessed Virgin Mary on 8 December.

In Catholic devotion the Immaculate Conception is connected with the apparitions of Lourdes (1858) and iconographically with the previous apparitions of Rue du Bac in Paris (1830). To underline the importance of dogma, the Catholic Church celebrates the Solemnity of the Immaculate Conception of the Blessed Virgin Mary on 8 December with the Mass Gaudens Gaudens. This holiday was already celebrated in the East in the 8th century, and was imported to southern Italy by Byzantine monks. In Sicily, in particular, the theme of the Immaculate Conception was immediately accepted and became very much felt even before the definition of the dogma. In 1439, at the Council of Basel it was the archbishop of Palermo, Niccolò Tedeschi, who claimed that Mary was conceived without sin. The canon and historian Antonino Mongitore says that even as early as 1323la Concezione di Maria” was a feast of precept in Palermo, thus certifying that her devotion in the Sicilian capital was even then so ancient as to “not know the beginning“. The Senate of the island vowed to defend the doctrine of the Immaculate Conception and undertook to honor the feast with a worthy celebration.

Thus originated the “one hundred ounce rite“, a sum donated to the convent of San Francesco initially to furnish the Senatorial Chapel, one of the identifying moments of the city of Palermo. The Senate (now the Municipality) still renewed every year the solemn bloody vow, pronounced for the first time in 1624 and common to most of the island, swearing with a report to shed its blood for the defense of the Immaculate Conception, primary and main Patroness of the City and of the Archdiocese of Palermo, who became the highest patroness of the Sicilian Region. From the south, the cult of the Immaculate Conception then spread to the whole West, especially on the initiative of the Benedictine and Carmelite religious orders. She was included in the calendar of the universal Church by Pope Alexander VII with the bull Sollicitudo omnium ecclesiarum of 8 December 1661.

Eve in The Garden of Eden Statue, Symbolic, Religious & Christianity Statues, Eva the Apple and the Snake Statue

Eve in The Garden of Eden Statue, Symbolic, Religious & Christianity Statues, Eva the Apple and the Snake Statue

Eve “the Apple and the Snake” in The Garden of Eden Statue

Eve in The Garden of Eden Statue, crafted by Master Artisan, made of high quality cold cast resin with a unique bronze powder finish. Intricately sculpted antique bronze and lightly colored finish makes this Eve’s statue a stand out piece. In Abrahamic religion, Adam and Eve are the first humans. In Islam, Adam is considered to be a prophet. In the Bible, Eve was the first woman, created from one of Adam’s ribs. God told Adam and Eve that they could eat the fruit from any tree except one. Tempted by a Serpent, Eve eats the forbidden fruit, and then convinces Adam to do the same. This angered God, who cast them from the Garden of Eden, condemning Adam to a life of hard labor and Eve to create new life through painful childbirth. This statue of Eve with the Serpent is made of cold cast resin, it has a bronzed finish to give it the look of metal, and has hand-painted accents to show incredible detail.

Eve was the first woman and second human, created by God from the rib of Adam, specifically to be his wife. Originally known as “Ishsha” (Heb.: woman, wife), for Adam perceived that she had been taken from the man (Ish: man, husband), he would later name her “Chawah” (“hard” aitch), as the “mother of all living” from the verb “chaya” (to be). Created on the sixth day with her husband, she completed the creative work of God. He had created the two of them as “man“, that is, “mankind“. Equal in being with the man, she had every bit of the “image and likeness” of God. However, she had been created to be a “helper fit for” her husband. She could provide the companionship that no other creature could offer and the ability to help Adam fulfill the command to “be fruitful and multiply“. At the Tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil she found a serpent who talked to her.

The serpent deceived her and made her doubt God, and tempted her to eat the forbidden fruit. She did so, and having done so, she gave some to Adam which triggered the Fall of the human race into sin. A consequence of this rebellion was her being cursed to have pain in childbirth, and desire to be in control of her husband who would rule over her. She would have 2 sons soon after the expulsion from the garden, Cain and Abel, only to lose Abel some time later to her firstborn’s murderous hand. At the age of 130 years old, she would set the record for birthing a child, never to be excelled in recorded history. Nothing else is known from the Bible about her subsequent life. The story of the creation of Eve from Adam is an explanation for love and marriage. The idea is that, as Adam was split apart into Adam and Eve, the two parts of an original whole long to be reunited.

According to almost all the confessions of Christianity, original sin is the sin that Adam and Eve, the progenitors of humanity according to the biblical tradition, would have committed against God, as described in the book of Genesis. The consequence of this sin would have been the fall of man, original sin is therefore described as what separated man from God and which, according to some interpretations, would have made man mortal. The nature of original sin has been explained in various ways according to the interpretations that have been given to the biblical passage and in general, however, it seems to represent the disobedience towards God on the part of man, who would like to decide for himself what is good and what is bad.

Although he is always called “the Archangel“, the Greek Fathers and many others place him over all the angels, as Prince of the Seraphim. The legendary “Sword of Saint Michaelsymbolizes an imaginary line linking seven monasteries, all dedicated to Saint Michael the Archangel, stretching all the way from Ireland to Israel. Skellig Michael (Ireland), St. Michael’s Mount (Great Britain), Mont Saint Michel (France), La Sacra di San Michele (Piedmonte, Italy), San Michele (Puglia, Italy), Monastery of San Michael (Greece), Monastery of Mount Carmel (Israel). Most of these shrines got their names due to reported apparitions of Saint Michael at their respective locations. Some see this as a sign, referencing the battle between Saint Michael and Satan. You will find it called various names: Sword of Saint Michael, Sacred Line of Saint Michael or Saint Michael’s Line. The most commonly appears to be the Sword of Saint Michael.

Saint Michael Mighty Warrior Archangel defeats and beheads the Evil Dragon, a great collectible piece for your personal Archangel collection. Michael is the Archangel of the first ray of protection, faith and the will of God. He is the Prince of the Archangels and of the Angelic Hosts, the Defender of the Faith, the Angel of Deliverance and his divine complement is Archeia Faith. The Book of Daniel calls him “the great prince which standeth for the children of thy people”. Saint Michael Fighting the Dragon is a part of the Apocalypse series, illustrating the Book of Apocalypse or Revelation of St. John. “And there was war in heaven: Michael and his angels fought against the Dragon; and the dragon fought and his angels, and prevailed not; neither was their place found any more in heaven”. As recounted by the Revelation of Saint John, at the end of the world, war will break out between Heaven and Hell, between Good and Evil.

As the commander of the Army of God, Archangel Michael leads the other angels in the fight against evil, represented in this statue by a dragon head. In Dürer’s original painting the Dragon has 7 heads. Each of the dragon’s heads represents one of the Seven Deadly Sins, (pride, greed, lust, envy, gluttony, wrath, and sloth). Dürer chose to capture this fight between good and evil at the moment when Saint Michael is thrusting his spear into one of the heads. Surrounding Saint Michael are three other angels ready to attack. Beneath the fighting lies a calm and serene landscape with mountains and a small town, highlighted by a church with a tall spire, in the distance. At the bottom in the center of the page Dürer has placed his distinctive “AD” monogram that is in all of his engravings. Albrecht Dürer considered printmaking to be one of the most important art forms, possibly even equal to the art of painting. His technical skill is well demonstrated in Saint Michael Fighting the Dragon. Saint Michael Warrior Archangel Slaying The Evil Dragon Statue measures: 6 inches / 15 cm x 4 inches / 10 cm x 10.5 inches / 26.5 cm.

Saint Gabriel Archangel with Cross and Trumpet Statue

This gorgeous Saint Gabriel Archangel Statue with Cross And Trumpet has the finest details and highest quality, truly remarkable. This Archangel Saint Gabriel with Cross and Trumpet Statue is sculpted and handcrafted to the finest detail in cold cast metal (bronze pewter) finish. In the Abrahamic religions, Gabriel is an archangel, first described in the Hebrew Bible. In the Hebrew Bible, Gabriel appears to the prophet Daniel to explain his visions (Daniel 8:15-26, 9:21-27). The archangel also appears in the Book of Enoch and other ancient Jewish writings. Alongside the archangel Michael, Gabriel is described as the guardian angel of Israel, defending its people against the angels of the other nations.

The name Gabriel translated from Hebrew means “God is my strength or God is my hero” in some languages. The Gospel of Luke relates the stories of the Annunciation, in which the angel Gabriel appears to Zechariah and the Virgin Mary, foretelling the births of John the Baptist and Jesus, respectively (Luke 1:11-38). Many Christian traditions, including Anglicanism, Eastern Orthodoxy, and Roman Catholicism, revere Gabriel as a Saint. Islam regards Gabriel as an Archangel sent by God to various prophets, including Muhammad. The first five verses of the Al-Alaq, the 96th chapter of the Quran, is believed by Muslims to have been the first verses revealed by Gabriel to Muhammad. Statue of Archangel Gabriel (15th century), adorning the top of the northwest corner pillar of the Palazzo Ducale in Venice.

The Latter Day Saints hold that the angel Gabriel is the same individual as the prophet Noah in his mortal ministry. Yazidis consider Gabriel one of the Seven Mysteries, the heptad to which God entrusted the world and sometimes identified with Melek Taus. According to the ancient Gnostic manuscript, the Holy Book of the Great Invisible Spirit, Gabriel is a divine being and inhabitant of the Pleroma who existed prior to the Demiurge. Gabriel’s horn instead (also called Torricelli’s Trumpet) is a particular geometric figure that has infinite surface area but finite volume. The name refers to the Christian tradition that (albeit not strictly supported by the Bible itself) identifies the Archangel Gabriel as the angel who blows the horn to announce Judgment Day. Archangel Saint Gabriel with Cross and Trumpet Statue measures: 12 inches / 30 cm x 7 inches / 18 cm x 16 inches / 40 cm.
