A cross pattée (or cross patty or cross Pate, known also as a cross formée/formy, croix pattée or Tatzenkreuz), is a type of Christian cross with arms that are narrow at the centre, and often flared in a curve or straight line shape, to be broader at the perimeter. The form appears very early in medieval art; for example in a metalwork treasure binding given to Monza Cathedral by Queen Theodelinda (d. 628), and the 8th century lower cover of the Lindau Gospels in the Morgan Library. An early English example from the start of the age of heraldry proper (i.e. about 1200) is found in the arms of Baron Berkeley.
I am finding medieval art much more attractive in my awakening and I encourage you to develop a taste for the fine arts as this can help spark imagination and wonder in your mind. We have so much potential as humans, but current indoctrination has you very limited which I aim to now change over the next century.Categorised in: Gossip, Uncategorized
