At work on my second oak cross;

I must admit that I nearly gave up at this early stage in the work,

but, after a long pause, decided to go on.

It took about six weeks to finish. See below.

Ecce lignum crucis in quo salus mundi pependit.

 

Behold the wood of the cross, from which hung the Salvation of the world.

 

Antiphon sung during the adoration of the cross on Good Friday.

 

oak, 50 x 80cm, summer of 2012

 

 

 

 

 

 

The cross is entirely made of letters;

the words lignum crucis form the patibulum (horizontal member).

The letters of salus mundi form the stipes (vertical member) to be read from bottom to top.

The small letters of pependit are carved into the big letters of salus mundi

to be read downwards from the i of mundi at the top.
