The Saint Benedict Medal is a Christian sacramental medal containing symbols and text related to the life of Saint Benedict of Nursia, used by Roman Catholics, as well as Anglicans, Lutherans, Methodists and the Western Orthodox, in the Benedictine Christian tradition. The medal is one of the oldest and most honored medals used by Christians and due to the belief in its power against evil is also known as the "devil-chasing medal". As early as the 11th century, it may have initially had the form of Saint Benedict's cross, and was used by Pope Leo IX. In widespread use after its formal approval by Pope Benedict XIV in the 18th century, the medal is used by Roman Catholics to ward off spiritual and physical dangers, especially those related to evil, poison, and temptation.
This unique standing crucifix comes with an ornately designed background and gold features.

I have always wanted a standing crucifix. This is a beautiful cross that draws me to the love of my Lord.
As a gift, I let someone select the crucifix she wanted, and she liked the look of this one, so I ordered it for her, but I was prepared to return it if it turned out to have the "cheap plastic" look that some colored resin items have. No need to return! It is a nice solid attractive piece, perfect for the recipient's needs.
