STONE RESIN TILE WITH CALATRAVA CROSSNobleWares Image of Stone Resin Tile HH004 With Calatrava Cross by Marto of Spain, and optional Wood Frame HH100 BY MARTO OF SPAIN
This Stone tile by Marto looks as if it were retrieved from ruins dated from the medieval crusades. Constructed of quality cold cast stone resin, the tile has the look, feel and even sound of carved porous stone. This Tile Measures 6 inches by 8 inches and frames what appears to be an old iron cross of the Templar Calatrava Order in high relief. Each tile is gift boxed with Marto seal of authenticity and comes complete with a decorative plate stand that allows the tile to be displayed vertically upon any tabletop or display shelf. Each Tile has a slotted back to accommodate a direct to wall picture frame type mount if desired. And if a larger decorated framework is a desired display choice, a rustic darkened wood frame is an available option and is sold separately. Made specifically to frame these Marto Tiles, the 14-1/2 inch by 12-1/2 inch solid wood frame has the look of wood taken from a cottage or church of medieval antiquity, creating and even grander visual presentation for these unique and highly collectable relics.

Order Of Calatrava Knights Banner with Emblem MF 1528
The Order of Calatrava
was a major military and religious order founded on Castile in the XII Century. The order was originated in 1158 when King Sancho III of Castile ceded the fortress of Calatrava to Raymond, abbot of the Cistercian monastery of Fitero, with instructions to defend it against the Moors. The order of knights and monks who defended the fort were formally recognized by the pope in 1164, and the Order became closely affiliated with the Cistercian abbey of Morimond in 1187. By the 15th century it had a membership of 200,000 and an annual income of 45,000 ducats. As the pace of the reconquest slowed, the order became increasingly involved in Castilian domestic politics. To neutralize this potential threat to the crown, the Spanish monarchs Ferdinand and Isabella, with papal sanction, took over the administration of the order in 1489.

The Calatrava Cross was the emblem of the Order and consists of a greek cross of gules with fleur-de-lys at the ends of each cross arm. REF/CREDITS
