Art of the Cross by Mary Emmerling

Book Description

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.

Author Biography - Mary Emmerling

Art of the Cross celebrates what is undoubtedly 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 the symbol in jewelry and accessories decorated with turquoise and other stones by Navajo silversmiths; whimsical Mexican Day of the Dead jewelry featuring skeletons and crosses; Native American textiles and beadwork; and a sampling of rustic architectural details found in the American Southwest.
