To produce this piece Cross created an exact replica of Mount Everest using paper. The pinnacle of planet Earth was reproduced in miniature, playing with human and geological time - and challenging the limits of a sheet of paper. A photograph was then taken through the opening of a crate where the sheets of paper used were originally stored and this image made into a limited edition print.
