Landmarks - Burren Roads

Late again, so here it is Burren Roads:

First I made a silkscreen of a large map of the Burren which I printed onto dyed cotton.

I took some of the lovely images from headstone and old ruins around the Burren area and quilted them and attached them by hand using really large stitches.

Added some more heads and then quilted the map and background.

Here;s the other head.

This was from an archway decorated with numerous heads, wonderful piece of carving.

Hi Paula,

lovely piece - I like the combination of the aerial views showing the landmarks from a distance, and then bringing the into the close and personal with the heads.
