weight of the soul

weight of the soul is a piece made of handmade paper that has been dyed, formed and sundried - these oblong pieces have been strung on sisal that extend above to attach to two metal rings that act as the anchor of the piece -- the sisal is wrapped with cotton rope as it descends, eventually branching from the sisal to join and in itself joined by being wrapped with carpet warp -- all ending in supporting a 3 lb weight that acts as the center of the piece -- adding the weight of the soul to balance the art -- the piece measures 4 ft x 5ft x 3in
