The Christ Child with Cross and Globe

Iglesia de Betlém, Barcelona, Spain

The cross and globe make an eloquent summary of the Christology of Philippians 2:8-9: "He humbled himself, becoming obedient unto death, even to the death of the cross. For which cause God also hath exalted him, and hath given him a name which is above all names."

The relief is on an outside corner of the church in the older part of the city.
