Chakana Cross

The cross (2”x2”) is a blending of the faith of the indigenous peoples of Peru and Christian theology. In a traditional Chakana Cross, the center has a hole that focuses the light of life. I place the ‘circle of hands’ at the center as an affirmation that God’s light is revealed in relationship with one another. There is a pair of hands on either side of the cross. The woods used are canary, myrtle and quaparobo.
