In The Crucifixion of Saint Andrew by Caravaggio the artist manages to have in the same painting Saint Andrew being crucified with the Latin cross and in the composition lines with another interpretation of the crucifixion the X-shaped cross of The Order of the Golden Fleece. .....

Caravaggio if asked which type of cross did you use in your painting of the Crucifixion of St Andrew could justly answer - Both.
