I hate how a geometrical figure consisting of two lines or bars perpendicular to each other, dividing one or two of the lines in half has been virtually monopolized by the Christian movement ;-P
In my foundation course I had to make a support plinth for a sculpture and the most efficient shape for this was cruciform. I was pressed for time because my foundation show was soon so I carried the base home across town on my shoulder.
I was frequently referred to as Jesus, mocked and jeered the whole journey home was an accidental performance piece in of itself. Now I was in my early twenties at the time and being a bit of a hippy had long hair and a long beard which probably...not sure, added to the comedy of the moment.
In retrospect it was rather funny but at the time I had no idea I was creating that effect when I opted to carry the thing home.
