Bonded resin, life-size corpus; height of the cross, 10.5 feet. The tree-of-life cross calls the viewer's attention to the beautiful irony in the passion of Christ as a remedy for the fall of Adam. (Jesus is called "the second Adam" by St. Paul.) It also reflects the kind of imperfect wood form that could have been used to make a cross in ancient times.

Installed at St. Gabriel's Catholic Church in McKinney, Texas. Life size, bonded resin. The corpus is available for reproduction in limited edition and could be placed on a similar or on a more traditional cross.
