moon cloth _ female figurine

 Moon Cloth     2016     Hand stitched hanging sculpture.
dimensions variable (135 cm h x 50 cm w x 16 cm d)
wool, indigo dye, cotton thread, silk thread, hand stitching   
Worked from the back of the cloth, strips cut from the bottom that were then couched in angles and circles.  The fabric became energized with hand work.
Inspired by the rotation of the moon, ancient female figurines from pre-history and the immensity of our vulnerable inner selves.
