Holy Face

XIX century. Silver Not on display

This splendid locket, made of embossed silver, depicts an image of the Holy Face of Christ on a gold background surrounded by some of the attributes of the Passion on the front: the crown of thorns, nails, spear and rod with sponge and ladder. The rear side features several tiny bone fragments along with a handwritten label that tells us that they belong to Saint John of the Cross (1542-1591), the famous Discalced Carmelite, who renewed his order and was a prominent mystic poet (Text drawn from cat. exp. Los Objetos Hablan, Sevilla, 2016)
