Father Csaba Cabafi, SJ, is a Hungarian Jesuit. He was ordained on July 26, 1997 at the St. Elizabeth of Hungary Church in Toronto.


I carved this cross as a celebration of this event. Most of the patterns follow the traditional motifs of the “kopjafa”.


The cross itself is basswood, and 12” (~30cm) high. The base is walnut.
