More Art Monday: Crosses

As Carl Jung wrote in “Man and His Symbols” (1964), “a symbol always stands for something more than its obvious and immediate meaning.” Since antiquity, crosses have served as religious symbols, national emblems, representations of secular groups, and more and have ranged in style from the traditional Greek to the flared Maltese versions. Explore some renditions in these artworks from our collection:
