this piece measures at 22 in x 30 in x 2 in -- it is composed of strips of 2.5 in hardware cloth that has been knotted together with carpet warp in an accordian fashion and then woven with cotton thread, alternately painted to achieve a striped effect -- painted reed has then been inserted through the peaks and stretches from side to side ending in an arch, both up and down -- representative of the bloodlines that intersect thought all cultures, strengthening and infusing new life -- each addition contributing new outlooks while preserving the integrity of the original source
