From a battered wooden cross

from w
(image by Matthew Foutch)Though the original symbol was an ugly wooden cross, over two thousand years that symbol has been recreated in silver and gold and transformed so much that the horror of that day is almost forgotten. However... I do like symmetry (sometimes) when creating images and the Celtic cross with its possibility for complexity is particularly interesting. When I saw a book cover advertised on one blogsite I downloaded it, found a few other pics and made some more sumptuous images of that symbol. Our church spaces (particularly Protestant) are often rather bare of colour, complex imagery, but there are many possibilities for interesting windows, banners, paintings that could be used. The picture here shows a variety of images thrown together. (Picasa just grabs parts of each image.) Each one could become an 'icon' for meditation.
