Make your faith a focal point with this stunning reverse glass painted cross. Perfect for those small spaces in a living room, den, or bedroom, this intricately painted cross adds a striking accent. The cross is decorated using a process called reverse glass painting, meaning that the actual painting is done in reverse on the under side of the glass, with details painted first, then layer upon layer until the background is painted last.
The artisans in Villa Maria del Triunfo have learned the technique of reverse glass painting to earn a much needed income. They are a small poverty-stricken community in Lima. While the artisans earn fair wages, and self respect, a portion of the proceeds are donated to Father Anthony to use within his parish. He offers a multitude of services to his parish, including a lunch "soup kitchen" type of operation, two medical clinics, a dental clinic, legal aid consulting and a full time social worker.
