Further information:
"This book is the final book (I think) in a series of books about geometric/religious symbolism. I have done one called 'Four' and one called 'Cross' but I did not feel I was done with this imagery.
The cross is a potent image, and has negative connotations in some circles since it was the crucifix that murderers were crucified on.
The cross comes from a commonly used visual division of the World. In many cultures a cross in a square signifies the World and it is divided into four colors, areas, directions etc.
The cross is also a symbol for Christianity in its fiery war mongering version, a version of the tree of life and the Church in general. So I decided to do one last book about the cross. the cross is also 'T'." Laura Wait
