Aztec Cross is a geometric improvisation. All of the structure of the outer ring is arranged on a four-fold symmetry axis with a Teutonic Cross in the background. The four tilted arms are reminiscent of a swastika, an ancient Hindu holy symbol. This symbolic structure can be found in several other positions inside the drawing. The eight pointed star in the center is identical to a theme in “Star of David”. Inside the eight pointed star is a woven band in a Celtic knot. Each of the four corners contains a vanishing point meant to resemble endless reflection in two mirrors.
The original drawing Aztec Swastika is a 14″x17″ hand-drawn pen and ink drawing, drawn using a .25 mm Rapidograph pen and black India ink. Prints are printed on matte archival quality acid-free paper.
