This vintage devotional scapular features a black and white printed image of Jesus as
Ecce Homo. Ecce Homo generally refers to Jesus as he was presented to the
crowds after having been scourged. Pontius Pilot presented Christ, wearing his Crown
of Thorns, to the crowds and uttered:
(Behold the Man)
Although not printed or sewn anywhere on the piece, it is believed that a scapular helps
protect the soul of the wearer and it is usually accompanied by the invocation:
Whosoever dies wearing this Scapular
shall not suffer eternal fire.
The picture has been protected by glass or acrylic and is then framed with brown felt and hand embroidered.
The backing piece is reinforced felt that has been hand sewn. Perhaps there is a devotional
inside - but we did not open the scapulars to determine this. The hanging string is just
that - cotton string or cord.
The brown pieces are approximately 1 inch long by 15/16 inch wide, but vary slightly
as these all hand made.
