Synopsis:

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 cross throughout history, this simple yet powerful book captures this timeless symbol.

From the Inside Flap:

Art of the Cross

MARY EMMERLING

PHOTOGRAPHS BY JIM ARNDT

The cross is an intriguing icon whose meaning is as varied and wide ranging as the cultures that have embraced it. From pagans to Celtics to Christians and Native cultures, all have been drawn to the form of the cross for the power and energy it exudes.

The romance of the cross is an enduring statement of faith, protection, commitment and adoration. Crosses in art are loved for their exquisite materials and design. In hand-woven rugs, fashionable silver jewelry, beadwork, candleholders, leatherwork and architectural ornament The Art of the Cross celebrates the Southwest Native, Mexican and Spanish interpretations of this beloved symbol.
