Early Christian art, 5th-6th A. D.
Early Christian art emerged at the dawn of the Christian religion, during the Roman occupation. A type of art that in its beginning lived hidden, often persecuted.
Bricks, made with manual moulds for their later cooking, could contain a stamp or seal, on many occasions was simply the brand of the workshop, or as in this case, a religious design. These bricks were used as headstone to cover Christian graves.
In this brick we see the mark of a smaller, square mould in which we observe the main emblem of early Christian art, the Chi Rho.
The Chi Rho is an image formed by the initials of Christ, the X and the P, sacred emblem that was used in occult and persecuted art from early Christian times.
In addition, this Chi Rho is accompanied by two other Christian religious emblems such as the dove, symbol of peace and the Eucharist, and the ear, symbol of the resurrection.

The piece you kindly bought was unusually rejected by the Spanish customs as it is a "weapon". We again asked the Ministry of Culture of Spain for another license with which, in theory, we should have been able to send the package. However, this was rejected again by customs. We called and informed with several transport agencies without success, but we never give up trying to give a good service to a client and answer all messages. At the end you decided to cancel your order before we were able to solve the problem. Of course we understand you are disappointed and we are very sorry for that, but we tried to do our best.
Great piece and great packaging. Thank you very much. A pleasure buying from you.
