A cross symbolizes the highest sacred values in different cultures: life, fertility, immortality. It is contrasted with the circle and the square, which are endowed with the function of separation of a certain internal space, while the cross embodies the idea of the center. The cross represents the union of the opposites: spirit and substance, life and death, male and female, higher and lower.
The cross as a crossroad is connected with the idea of the choice. It is also a cosmic symbol. The cross is a symbol not only of the macrocosm, but also of the microcosm: it is an image of a human with open arms. The cross of this type contains peace and tranquility.
