Isaac's Tapestry

I have a strong sense of satisfaction that Isaac's tapestry is now complete. I'm also very happy that it fits into the living room so well. It was a bit hard to straighten, so I decided to let it carry me along with it in its imprecision. I have a nice straight frame around a charmingly wobbly piece of textural art.

I am so happy with it.
The Guatemalan artist who made this started with some blue fabric with brown vertical stripes. She sewed two pieces of this fabric together and added her own horizontal stripes to create the illusion of a bird cage. She then filled the work with 41 different birds, all unique and beautiful. It is a wonderful piece of work that I am privileged to own. I wish she could see where it ended up and how much we enjoy it.
