A Crucifix of Opposites – Slate Cross and Bronze Corpus

Slate – the Material of Death
A most fortunate and meaningful coincidence here that slate is the material both of many tombstones and of this cross. Slate is mined from deep within the earth. Slate, is a rough and uneven rock, darkly colored in hues of gray and black. No material could better symbolize death or that most notorious instrument of death, the cross. No material could better symbolize the dark tomb from which the Crucified and Risen Christ emerges in glory, now shining brightly like polished bronze in the noonday sun.
