Tin Crosses -- click on an image for more detail

The cross is one of man’s most enduring symbols. The vertical line is considered male and spiritual; the horizontal line female and earthly. It is a symbol of duality and the union of opposites.

In Mexican culture, the cross is used to make requests or give thanks to Christ or one of the santos. Modern adaptations of the cross have become popular as decorative art.
