The throne shows the place inside us. An imaginary pedestal, on which we can put our fantasies, desires, wishes, secret thoughts or something that we would like to say aloud or shout into the world, only we don't know how. Why the cross? The author frequently uses this symbol in his work. As he says, in his concept the cross is not just a religious symbol, but also a base point which was created by intersection of two lines. Like the expression of the two symbols Jing and Jang, Me - You, She – He, She – It etc. This sculpture was created in 2016, two years later the author inscripted three reliefs, three questions. The proper understanding of context is left upon the individuality and sensitivity of every single viewer.
