They divide my garments among them and cast lots for my clothing.

Psalm 22:18

This is part of a triptych of images based on Psalm 22, 23 ("Hills") and 24 ("Hands.")  The cross is such a familiar symbol that I wanted to include an element that would raise questions.  The items in the right hand corner of the design represent the 'casting of the lots.'  The purple background represents the temple curtain that was torn in two at the death of Jesus.

The cross itself crosses the frame as through Christ's sacrifice on the cross the way was made possible for all to come into relationship with God.

Working the cloth that drapes over the cross was a particularly fiddly part of the design which required a lot of concentration to place all the tiny pieces.
