St. Thomas Lutheran ELCA, Bloomington, IN, USA
These Lenten Banners show the crown of thorns which our Lord – the King of Kings and Prince of Peace accepted, and his royal robes forever marked by the wounds he bore for our sins.
The banner has a large crown of thorns; made from natural color linen, supported by black netting, outlined in red. The circular crown of thorns surrounds the frame which holds the three drapes. Patsy dyed and wove the chennille using various purples but ending in crimson. These drapes fall from the three support arms, and vary in length from 6 to 8 feet.
