Project Description

The Source

This piece was completed while we were on sabbatical in India. The background is taken from a wool shawl, the Indian winter garment. The idea is that earth takes on the form of a woman and the waters of life flow from her womb/bowl into a tree and on into the seas. There are 13 crescent moons to refer to the female monthly cycle. A sun symbol is composed of three circles making a trinity. Corn grows in the center, each fertilized by a fish, in the native American tradition. The reddish colors come from using the red earth of India as a dye. 24″ x 36″  1992
