Descending Dove ceremonial cushion: 2015

ulysses-black---dove-cushion---3years-later.jpg

Red-Black silk dupion, with cyan Hebrew letter 'Yod' - the 'secret seed', from which radiate black rays edged with metallic gold tapestry threads. Above this, the gnostic symbol of the descending divine grace, a white dove, is fully embroidered in white tapestry threads, and edged in black. The cushion is framed with black fringing, and backed with a dull crimson linen. This artifact was created for a priestess to sit upon.
   It turns out, this type of embroidery is a REAL a labour of love. It takes AGES, with thousands of stitches on that dove.
