Spiral Cross by cari
The cross shape itself has been widely used by many ancient peoples, long before the arrival of Christianity. Its four arms were perfect for denoting the four elements, the four directions of the compass, and the four parts of man - mind, body, soul and heart. The addition of the ring around or through the cross has had many explanations, everything from sun worship and symbolism, to creating a shape with the cross that was well contained and aesthetically pleasing. This is a sea blue cross with goldwork, enclosed within a spiral border. Prints of this painting are available from the Gift Shop in my personal site!
