Its design simplicity has been around for a very long time.

For many the CROSS bears social and religious connotations that are bound by history.

a. An upright post with a transverse piece near the top

b. A crucifix.

c. A medal, emblem, or insignia, form of a cross

d. A mark or pattern formed by the intersection of two lines

Today we see its theme and form used in interiors, music, literature, art, furniture, design, architecture and signage.
Check out the following Artisan pieces that have been transformed.
