Western mysticism pt1 (domestic version)




  There is a degree of uncertainty as to the origin and symbolism of the Celtic cross. It is considered by some to be a pagan phallic symbol referring to the 'wheel of the year'.

Here a full-scale photo of St Piran's cross (or wheel) is modified by the addition of a rotating 'rotorelief' designed by 20th century mystic Marcel Duchamp.
