  This cross was originally quite large and carved in stone. I (Deanne McKeown) found it in Sonora, Mexico, drew the design, and then reduced it to a suitable size to be worn. The design is an intriguing mix  of Aztec imagery combined with a Christian cross. The icons and liturgy of New World Catholicism was often this sort of mixed bag. Generally this happened because  early missionaries perceived ways in which native beliefs and images could be blended with the new faith to make it easier to explain and accept.
