The Obfuscated Cross (T-shirt)
Designed by ThomasMurphy
‘The Obfuscated Cross’ From my Original Painting on Canvas ‘The Obfuscated Cross’, it is a little known archetype of creation and can be thought of in many different ways. The obfuscated cross looks like the pattern of a Tornado. Tornadoes are often thought of as acts of God. So in reality the obfuscated cross is indeed a supernatural symbol that is obfuscated; and obfuscated means somewhat hidden from view. So the obfuscated cross has a depth of meaning in many ways. It is a fun symbol to think about. The man in your life will love this. I created my obfuscated cross using oil color on canvas. And the color pattern represents the lineage of creation. On the bottom first I have black, and then the yellow symbolizes a sun, the orange is then the firey volcanic formation of a planet. The bottom layers of brown represent the depth of earth and various layers of soil. The top layer being golden harvest. Layers of green represent vibrant new growth and life. The top layers of blue represent the water and sky of the earth. And then it transitions to volcano, sunlight and darkness again. The shape can also be viewed as the form of a man with a hat. And of course the cross was what our Lord Jesus Christ was crucified on. And one cannot deny that god created the universe and everything. I like to think of my obfuscated cross as Gods love for the earth; the natural world that he gave us to live on. And that is why my cross is made up of the elements of the earth and creation in one. Or alternatively God’s presence on earth; were you might not expect it to be. God where you might not expect to see him! My ‘Obfuscated Cross’ also has elements of Native American culture in the imagery as well as flowery elements. And there are many layers of meaning, interpretation and philosophy present in my “Obfuscated Cross.” It is a stack of table plates, coins or barbell plates. It is also the mark Satan gives to others. It is a barcode that has been rendered by being cut away from. It is graphical representation of density layers. It is also the graphical representation of a sound wave. It is the reflection of a tree on ripples of water. It has greater relevance that the French Curve. It is the apparition of the Holy Spirit. It is the mark of the “blessed ones.” It is the force of God! It is percussive aftermath. It is a striped sock. It is a multi-flavored hard candy. It is a scale of light. It represents a different dimension. It is the painting of a seer. It is my painting! It is a temperature gradient. It is a representation of the miserable ones who are still with us. It is a staircase. It is a ladder. It is the evolution of time. It is static, fleeting and ephemeral. It is the measured force vector of a knock-out punch. It is the spiking pain of childbirth. It is a locomotive force. It is a spring in motion. It is the ripple of water and the reflection of that near it. It is balance. It is someone taking a stand. It is a crossing guard motioning, “Do not cross!” It is an offensive lineman in a football game doing the same. It is a representation of both movement and inertia. It is a form of measure. It is uniform and yet represents change. It is punctuated. It is the formation of a name. It is power in beauty. It is beauty in power. It is quickness. It is a coded message. Something came from nothing. So there must be something in nothing! But only if that nothing is something! And that nothing could only be something if it brought nothing with it; so it brought nothing with it. But not for its own sake, for the sake of the nothing that wasn’t. And that is the nature of love. It brought nothing with it so that nothing could see what it too could be; if it chose love.

Good product and even greater customer service.

by Ms M. on Nov 12, 2017

The T shirt that I had bought was a little too large but Redbubble staff were prompt in helping me with the issue and ordered a replacement for me in record time. Customer service is really top notch. Would recommend to anyone looking for a good T and even greater service. The quality of the T shirt itself wasn't as good as I expected. The fabric felt thin between my fingers but I guess that's what differentiates the classic T shirt from the premium quality T shirt. May put in extra coin next time to get the better quality one. Other than that, great novelty product.

Great Service and Products!

by Beverley O. on Oct 11, 2017

I purchased a T-shirt for my boss. It arrived quickly and in very cool packaging. Loved the little clothespin. I had gotten the wrong size and he needed to return it. We were both amazed and how quickly and easy the whole process was. Not to mention that he was asked to simply pass on his too-small T-shirt and was sent a replacement for free. I turned on another office mate to your website and she has started her Christmas shopping already. I will continue to spread the word on all of your great items!!!!
