Description: The priestly crown (also known as mitra or miter) is a traditional, ceremonial head-dress for priests in Eastern Orthodoxy. The crown is worn on the head during Divine Liturgy and represents Christ the King. The MITRE (Gr. Mitra) serves as an emblem of power bestowed upon a minister of the Church. The mitra is properly worn by the priest.
This is a light-weight head covering made of black velvet and fully-lined inside for comfort. This priestly mitre is ornamented with golden metallic-thread embroideries, rhinestones and beads in corresponding colors. Also each crown is adorned with four printed on fabric icons depicting the Christ Pantocrator, the Theotokos, St. John the Baptists and the Crucifixion cross. Each crown comes in a tubular black leather carrying case.
Because this mitre is made-to-order and because of the elaborate design and handwork, it takes 30 to 45 days for work completion.
