Processional Cross (St. Bernard)

A processional cross is simply a crucifix which is carried at the head of a procession, and which, that it may be more easily seen, is usually mounted upon a long staff or handle. ( -- Catholic Encyclopedia)

The crucifix pictured here is actually bronze. I made everything black and white with the exception of the figure of Christ. I wanted him to be the focus of the composition. As you can see pictured below the figure of Christ tends to blend in even with a stained glass window for a background.

Pictures taken at St. Bernard Catholic Church in Burkettsville. Look for more pictures in upcoming post.
