Among the infinite symbols, crosses deserve a particular attention. Too easily assimilated to Christianity, the cross should not be confused with the crucifix. Besides, crosses were originally used to mark prime locations or to delimit plots of land.

Its use as a religious symbol dates back several centuries before Christ. It also has a universal value just like an example in the ancient Indian religion : in the caves of Elephanta, one can see a cross on top of the head of a character. In another ancient painting, the god Krishna is represented with six arms, three of which hold a cross.
