I would like to see a church that had depiction of a blood stained EMPTY cross and a depiction of an EMPTY tomb side by side with the words of the angel stating “ HE is not here, HE IS RISEN as HE said!”
That would evacuate most of the significance from the symbol. You do not see this because your heart is closed to the contemplation of this mystery.
In Catholic Churches, the Crucifix is accompanied by the Tabernacle, which holds the Body of Christ in the Eucharist, so we know Jesus is present. There is NEVER a time in Mass when we are not reminded that He is Risen, and is with us, ALWAYS.
