The cross in this burnt wood piece is composed primarily from the negative space around and in the wood. The cross is gradually narrower from bottom to top, and is edged in blue paint that is only visible from an oblique angle.

It is currently mounted on what we can only assume is some piece of wood that Marxhausen happened to have handy in the studio. It would probably benefit from being remounted.
