Cross Pendant

 

Cross pendant "Blagovest" is a Crimson Bell of Blagovest. On holidays, Blagovest tells the faithful ones about the heavenly Bliss, on good week it tolls for our oneness with God through Christ the Saviour and every day it says about victory of life and infinite joy in the Kingdom of Heaven. 

Artisans of the "Lobortas" House were able to see this euphony and pass it through the glitter of gold shining diamonds and joyful colors of enamels. To visualize sonority and melody of church-going bell, the cross was fired with very high temperatures. This is one of the important stages of the hot enamel technique, by which colors of the cross will always be fresh and splendid. Before starting their song to the glory of God, the bells are tempered in ovens. 

Flower in the middle of the cross is revealed as the heart of the Virgin Mary revealed good news, received from Gabriel on the day, which now is called Annunciation in the Church Calendar. 

In addition, inflorescences at the ends of the cross "Blagovest" are the main ceremonial sound of Bells and Chime, along with a flight of birds, which, according to the old tradition, are released on this day. 

Cross neck "Blagovest" is a solemn ringing of large Bell that heralds the good news to all those to whom it is given to hear!
