Portable Neon Crucifix with Stand and Traveling Case

Buyer Protection Guaranteed

About

When you hear of tent revival churches, you have to imagine that the entire contents had to be packed up to travel. This unique cross, with its' golden Jesus in the center, breaks down to fit into a traveling briefcase. The Stand is a collapsing tripod, and the cross is made of cast aluminum. The neon transformer is housed in the base of the cross. The neon is half yellow, and half blue - most likely an illustration of passing from the darkness into the light. The cross, stand and carrying case are all in excellent original condition, with very little natural wear. The stand allows for adjustable heights.
