There is a great deal of Christian symbolism in this ancient design.
- The wounded hands and feet of the crucified Christ.
- The wounded Most Sacred Heart of Jesus.
- The hammer symbolizing the sinner nailing Jesus on the cross.
- The pincer representing all of us trying to remove the nails from the cross by our virtuous life and fidelity to Jesus.
- The flogging whip symbolizing the Flagellation of Christ, prior to the crucifixion.

centuries and were created specifically for embroidery on vestments and other church linens.
