This is the finished work, (my previous post is this piece, in progress). Thoughts the germinated while I was working on this were primarily about our political world. How we seem to be so confused about priorities and threats.
This is a shot on the angle. I did free motion stitch inspirational thoughts into the lower half of the work. One cannot necessarily read the sayings, unless truly motivated to get 'up and personal' , but then the words just 'read' as another design element (I hope).
detail of some of the figures. As previously noted on some of my other work, these figures are inspired by photographs I have taken during my travels.
