The image of Christ and the cross is composed of strips pasted to the base. I found that pasting the strips for the outline and filling it with the relevant color strips was the easiest way to do it. I initially got myself tied up in knots trying to paste the filler strips without the outline, but I soon realised that I had gotten hold of the wrong side of the stick. Anyways, the background circle is made of loose marquee pasted densely.
I have tried to make the curve of the strips to follow the natural shape of the body and the unevenness is by design tor try to make it as natural as possible.
