Jerusalem, Israel

An empty cross symbolizes the risen Christ. Happy Resurrection Day! Try to figure out the other symbols. What's the meaning of the orb on which the cross rests?  the trefoils? the circle where the axes meet? Holy Trinity Cathedral was built in the 19th century to serve the Russian Orthodox faithful on pilgrimages to Jerusalem. [2010]
