This handcrafted Oak Framed Cross, contains between 1750 and 2000 multi-coloured pieces of stained glass, mounted on silver to reflect maximum room light thus offering maximum brilliance of colour.
It is suspended from the roof timbers inside The Church of St. Margaret, Rottingdean (installed on Dec. 20 2006).
One can visualise the Christ Figure within the design, which also depicts blood from his wounds at side, feet and hands.
The Cross is 5ft 9inches long and 2ft 5inches wide, by 1 inch deep.
It weighs 40 pounds.
The Cross was privately commissioned by Elma Miller, congregant of St. Margaret’s, who has been a frequent visitor to the House of Rayne’s Summer Exhibitions.
