Our Small Alpine Shrine is 23″ high from roof peak to bottom of the shrine body. (THE POST SHOWN IS NOT PART OF THE SHRINE, POSTS ARE SOLD SEPARATELY) The roof front is relief carved with a vine symbolic of Jesus “I am the vine you are the branches”. The shrine is made of Western Red Cedar and is fully doweled with over 50 Black Locust Dowels. No metal screws or nails are used in the construction.
The shrine is constructed to be very durable in an outdoor environment for many years. Carved posts are available for separate purchase. The shrine comes ready to mount to a post or wall. The shrine is fully assembled and comes with mounting hardware. The crucifix is removable for cleaning. We have over 15 years experience in shrine construction and have studied the construction techniques historically used in Europe. We can customize shrines and prayer plates for an extra charge.
The shrine pictured is fully representative of the shrine that will be sent to you the only difference is there would be the variation in wood color, texture, grain patterns, knots etc.. Wayside Shrines is a family owned Catholic woodworking business dedicating our work to the Greater Honor and Glory of God and his Holy Church.
