I’m humbled to introduce our Christogram Coin Gouria and Pomegranate. Each “coin” is handmade with clay, painted in my signature pearlescent paint and adorned with wooden beads, and a large tassel. The pomegranates are imported from Greece and are hand painted in a Christogram Coin pattern and embellished with a tassel and wooden bead.
Hang them on a wall, cabinet drawer pulls, drape them over a decor piece already in your home or simply lay them on a table to bring to show your love of Christ.
The coins and pomegranates make wonderful Name Day, Birthday, Anniversary or just because gifts all year long.
Early Church Christogram is a combination of letters that form abbreviations for the name of Jesus Christ. In Greek, the name "Jesus Christ" is indicated by the letters "IC"and "XC." "NIKA" is a Greek verb used in this particular Christogram, which means "conquers," or "conqueror," or even "is victorious" hence "Jesus' victorious name." Thus "ICXC NIKA" means "Jesus Christ conquers."
In the Christian tradition today and particularly in Greek Orthodox churches, we find the letters IC and XC in many church decorations, stained glass windows, and wooden icons showing Christ's person. These letters are so important in the Greek Orthodox Church they are stamped upon every loaf of altar bread. In this way, the church invites those Christians who share in Holy Communion to be part of Jesus' victorious name.
