Love the cross, not too sure about the studs. Maybe they’ll grow on me :)

Nice cross, scroll work and design; but, may I ask what is the significance or reason for the spikes?

Hellish cross, you should have photographed it upside down with those evil spikes ;)I guess most people would prefer it without them, but not me :D
Neat scrollwork mate!

Killer work Mike! I personly dig the spikes. Addes a cool vibe to the piece. It makes me automatically think of a biker I know. If you look at him he looks meaner than a junk yard dog who would assume take you out than look at you twice… Then you find he is a God feering devout Christian man.
I love works of art like this…. You are a true artist my friend….

Thank you all for your comments. Bob, there is not really any significance or reason for the cross. I just made an attempt at being more creative in the design. I’m not a highly religious kinda guy although I do believe in god. I just like the way crosses look and use the symmetry to enhance the design.

Cozmo,I think your cross is AWESOME looking, especially with the studs. I like the way the studs make the piece pop!Great work!!! How did you get the studs on there?

I was kind of poking fun at “HillbillyShooter”’s comment – sort of twisting it around. What you made is art, and art doesn’t have to have a specific significance or reason – it’s just art. :-)
And in this case, it’s good art!

Thanks Bob! :-)
Bubba, the spikes are held on with a stud on the back side that has ridges in it. They are normally used for dog collars. I put a piece of wood on the spike and bumped it down with a small hammer onto the stud. I hope this explains it.

definitely different. The spikes possibly representing thorns.
