Cross with Red Heart: Wheat straws are tied into a Latin style cross. The center is embellished with the wheat heads and a red straw heart. Kansas straw is a fiber so it accepts the fabric dye used to color it. Here a scarlet red dye is used to create the heart as a symbol of Christ’s love.

The Cross on the Hill © 2000 Marian Vavra: From time to time Marian creates wheat art with a special purpose in mind. This is one of them and here is her story. The Cross on the Hill was designed in the fall of 2000 as the special workshop project for the Women's Retreat of Grace Presbyterian Church in Wichita, Kansas. She was asked to teach forty women to make a symbolic reminder of their retreat experience. The retreat theme was based on finding Sabbath moments. The experience of making the cross provided a Sabbath moment for the women. The imagery of this cross is relevant to her surroundings. There is a real cross that sits on top of a hill in the middle of the Kansas Flint Hills. If you drive on the Kansas Turnpike, also known as I-35, north of Wichita, you come around the bend after leaving the Matfield Green rest stop heading toward Emporia. Looking up at mile marker 101 on top of the limestone hill you will see this old, wooden hewn cross. It sits in the middle of pastureland where it is a silent yet resilient statement of the Risen Lord. The Cross on the Hill was designed in the likeness of this cross, with the simple, tied straw cross arms anchored into the hill of wheat heads.
Size - The size varies due to the natural properties of wheat. The piece is sewn into place on an 8½” w x 10”- 11”h cardstock for packaging.
