Tell me about this wax artform, Cagey. (please).

Karen, are you asking about meaning or process?

This is originally a pencil drawing-- I enhanced it digitally to give it the "waxy" feel that you picked up on.

I was asking about process. I read the song lyrics and thought I had a good idea of meaning.

Although, now that I have your attention ;-) is that thorns or barbed wire? What is the symbol above the cross?

The original pencil drawing is here:

The thorns are barbed wire... :)

The symbol is a vaguely alchemy influenced "doodad" that appeared to me in a dream like state in the early nineties. It surfaces in much of my art, ie the following just for starters.

Thanks for your interest Karen!
