Art of the Cross
PHOTOGRAPHS BY JIM ARNDT
The cross is an intriguing icon whose meaning is as varied and wide ranging as the cultures that have embraced it. From pagans to Celtics to Christians and Native cultures, all have been drawn to the form of the cross for the power and energy it exudes.
The romance of the cross is an enduring statement of faith, protection, commitment and adoration. Crosses in art are loved for their exquisite materials and design. In hand-woven rugs, fashionable silver jewelry, beadwork, candleholders, leatherwork and architectural ornament The Art of the Cross celebrates the Southwest Native, Mexican and Spanish interpretations of this beloved symbol.

I've had the pleasure knowing Nathalie Kent (whom is partly responsible for this book) for years and visiting her two shops in Santa Fe. In December of 2006 I had the pleasure and wonderful opportunity to meet with the photographer of the book, Jim Arndt. What a treat.
You don't have to be religious to admire this book. It's about appreciating "the art of the cross". For me, the photographs, colors and tactile feel of the book is just an added bonus to why I truly love this book! Hope to see a "second chapter" to this one!
them filtered through Mary's impeccably elegant tastes. From thrift stores
to antique warehouses, she has brought together a stellar retrospective of
the cross in design. The photographs are beautiful and while it is not a
large size coffee table book, it's pretty affordable. I highly recommend it,
especially as a gift for the holiday season.
