DescriptionTwo woven panels crisscross each other to form a three-dimensional cross-from abstract piece. One panel is red and the other is a golden yellow. Each panel is tightly woven at the top and the bottom. In the middle section, where the panels intersect, there are loose vertical threads. Because the threads mesh in different places, the piece has numerous shades of yellow, orange, and red.
