DAY OF THE DEAD NICHO SHRINES - Elena Mary Siff

Idea came to me to "gaudy up" some small thrift store frames for photos

"In an Orthodox convent church dedicated to St. George, at Raychani, a tiny bone is surrounded by an elaborate setting representing the hand of John the Baptist. Such relics are often thought to smell sweetly, and remain in a state of constant preservation despite time and the elements. Raychani’s other relics are said to include slivers of the cross as well."   Photo by John Canning

Reliquary of the hand of John the Baptist. In an Orthodox convent church dedicated to St. George, at Raychani, a tiny bone is surrounded by an elaborate setting representing the hand of John the Baptist.

Bone and coral reliquary.

Taken in the monastery treasury, this is the bone relic of a saint, held up by red coral, inside a silver reliquary. At the Dominican Monastery in Dubrovnik, Croatia
