The Wall

The Wall, hand embroidery on found handkerchief, 2013

'The Wall' is a depiction of the West Bank Barrier between Israel and Palestine. I don't know enough about the situation to form an educated opinion, but my thoughts are often directed to these two nations. The 'relics' I worked with in The Sands a few years ago are things that my Great Grandmother collected during her time in Jerusalem. 

Some words that came to mind while sewing this were fragility, division, shelter, mending/reconciliation.... I'll leave it at that.
