Art of the Cross

Mary Emmerling/Jim Arndt

Art of the Cross celebrates one of the world's most recognized ancient symbols-the cross. This iconic symbol predates Christianity in cultures around the world, and has been used as a religious symbol and as an ornament from the dawn of civilization. Crosses have been found in almost every part of the old world, from Scandinavia where the Tau cross symbolized the hammer of the God Thor, to India, where the vertical shaft represents the higher, celestial states of being and the horizontal bar represents the lower, earthly states.

Illuminated by succinct text that discusses the appeal of the cross throughout history, this simple yet powerful book captures this timeless symbol.
