the Cross

The cross on top of Täby Church. According to Wikipedia this is a Cross Pommee, or Pommee Cross, since it a has circular knob at the end of each arm. The circular knob on the end of each arm of the Pommee Cross represents an apple, and apples represent the fruits and rewards of living a good Christian life.

Good follow-up research on that one! And a nice close-up too.

Thanks for getting the history. Interesting that they're apples: the forbidden fruit and all that.
