Ad Crucem VDMA Wood Engraving
This custom carving of the "battle cry of the Reformation" makes a beautiful gift for church and home. VDMA is the abbreviation for the Latin phrase "Verbum Domini Manet In Aeternum" - The Word of the Lord Endures Forever (Isaiah 40:8 and 1 Pet. 1:25).
The engraving is beautifully finished with color highlights offsetting the natural wood grain. The carving is sealed to provide long-life protection, but it cannot be placed outdoors without protection from sun and rain. Indoor placement should avoid persistent direct sunlight to avoid fading and UV damage.
