Trésor Bleu Exclusive, Authentic

We love that our trésors have years of wear, years of prayer.  If only these "ballers de prièr" - prayer bullets - could talk.  French soldiers in World War I created these artifacts by hand, by literally using ammunition casings to create sacred pieces of art, plentiful during WWI.  Also called "trench art," soldiers would use them for prayer and devotion in the trenches.   Inside there is a tiny statuette of St. Anthony of Padua holding a young Jesus.  This is a classic depiction of the saint and Child, which is a metaphor of Saint Anthony's closeness with Jesus.  St. Anthony is the patron saint of lost items.  The beautiful French Cross (croix) at the top finishes off this iconic piece.  A wonderful journey piece, or journey through life piece.
