Title: Recessional Size: 18” tall Medium: Cedar on oak By Bart Begalka This represents the symbolism of the processional cross being carried from the altar area out into the world at the end of mass. Three separate symbols of Christ are embedded in the cedar. The cedar tree is known as the “giver of life”. The stylized symbols of the church are in oak, the traditional interior material in many traditional European churches.
