  • Description


    A greek lettered fish; handcrafted by Ernie Besler out of Oregon Myrtlewood.

    This fish is an ancient symbol for the Savior.
    The Greek word for fish IXOYE (pronounce "IKTHUS") formed a "rebus" with the following meaning: Jesus Christ God's Son Savior.
    Early Christians drew the symbol on the door-posts of their homes, on the walls of catacombs, and generally used it as a means of identifying themselves as those who belonged to the Lord.

    A clear semi-gloss finish lets the wood shine through.
    The wide array of colors and grain patterns insure that, though similar, no two fish will be exactly alike.
