Spacially, the arms of the cross in each peice represent the axis of the world. The crossing of the vertical axis (symbolizing spirtuality and hope) and the horizontal axis (sybolizing humanity and pain) creates a formidable tension that also refers to the four elements and thier properties. The Paths refer to the Journeys of Life: the eternal searches for Truth, Happiness and Purpose. The paths also refer to communication throughout these Journies: Paths that parallel eachother in determined directions that rarely conviene or connect. The spiritual reference to the cross juxtiposes the human loss of connection.
