Latin cross with pectoral patching of Byzantine origin in bone engraved with a geometric motif, mounted in a pendant. Each of the branches has cabochons of turquoise. The cross is a universal sign used in many different civilizations, in India by Krishna, but also among the Mayas or in ancient Peru by the Incas as a cosmic symbol. It is the main instrument of the passion of Christ, whose port develops from the 4th century after Constantine the Great recognised the Christendom.
