St Peter's Inverted Cross Pendant Necklace
The Cross of Saint Peter or Petrine Cross is an inverted Latin cross traditionally used as a Christian symbol, but in recent times also used as an anti-Christian symbol. The pendant necklace has a slick design which can be paired with any outfit, from casual to formal wear, which makes the necklace a great gift for your man. The pendant is made of stainless steel and it is available in black, silver or gold color, the size is 55mmx30mm.
It is believed that Peter requested this form of crucifixion as he felt he was unworthy to be crucified in the same manner that Jesus died. As such, some Catholics use this cross as a symbol of humility and unworthiness in comparison to Jesus.
By inverting the primary symbol of Christianity, the upside-down cross has become popular within anti-religion groups. The inverted cross is also a recurring motif in punk rock and heavy metal, where it is embraced as the symbol of anti-authoritarianism and defiance (but not necessarily Anti-Christian).
