Crowns

Christian martyrs bear witness to a life filled with grace and accent the martyr's crown rather than deny this grace. For the Romanian Orthodox Christians, who made these wedding crowns, holy matrimony is a type of martyrdom: a death of one's ego in order to be born anew into a life shared wholly with one's beloved.
