Ivaan Kotulsky left the planet on 6 December 2008, but so much of him remains here on earth - his art, his humour, his photographs, his huge personality, his generous heart, his optimistic spirit, his boundless love, together with our memories of him - that this blog is a virtual Museum of Ivaan.

30 PIECES OF SILVER: Part 21
Ivaan made a number of crosses, mostly Eastern Orthodox ones, and although I have some favourites among those, the one I love the most is this sterling silver non-denominational cross:
It's large - three and a half inches in length - heavy, and quite nautical in flavour. As with most of Ivaan's pieces, it's "good both sides", so it's a matter of personal choice which way it's worn. The row of holes down the centre make it look like a musical instrument. The holes can have stones set in them, but my distinct preference is for them to be left open.
And here's a quick snapshot of the other side. Sorry about the focus, but you get the general idea. It would be excellent to wear when one is going sailing. Looks like it could ward off quite a few pirates.
