Shadow Shot Sunday

This 14th-century iron, silver, and enamel reliquary
cross once sheltered a fragment of wood believed to
come from the True Cross (I'd need a very
large grain of salt . . . but so they claimed). It was a
gift to the Met from J. Pierpont Morgan—I showed
another one here on my other blog recently.

  1. & don't they have another with a piece of Mary Magdalene's tooth in it too?

  2. PS I love your idea for your new banner Alexa!

  3. Very pretty!
    Have a wonderful week!
