In 'Communion' the priest-like figure launching into the sky is partly composed of a tangle of bones and antlers which are intended to have two interpretations. Firstly they symbolise animal instinct (replacing as they do the head of the priest and by implication his thoughts). Secondly, I hope they convey a sense that the deity with which the priest is communing - if it exists - is not necessarily a benevolent one. This is why the bones/antlers protrude in a menacing way towards the figure.

Finally, in a looser sense, the bones/antlers represent pagan beliefs and by extension the irrational and superstitious foundation of all religions. The fact that the priest is kneeling in front of bones and thin air is intended to suggest the futility of prayer.
