Wood, copper and glass
This wooden cross, made from Japanese oak, was a focal point of worship in the Chapel of Christ the King. It was designed as a result of the vision and creativity of Reverend Pat Parr, Chaplain of St Paul's Collegiate School 1962 - 1978.
Fifth-former, John Robertson (Clark 1965 -1968) and sixth-former, Bill Turner (Clark 1965 - 1968), constructed the large cross and were supervised by woodwork master Mr Vic Matthews.
The wooden cross is faced with glass-plated pieces of copper designed by Auckland artist Pat Hanly, who also designed the windows for the Chapel's east wall.
Location: Chapel of Christ the King (Hamilton Campus)
