Write your own label for the yarn painting

Museums don't know everything.

In 2006 was asked visitors to tell us what they knew about this object.

We asked people to write a brief label about this object: a memory, an interesting fact, something you notice, even a poem.

Your Comments, Thoughts, Questions, Ideas

Todays hobbies are linked to the past. Today they are generally for fun, in the past they had more meaning.

It makes a person wonder how the ancient people of the past used their natural resources to create such beautiful colors. They weren't so uncivilized after all...

very difficult indeed-

this art form takes extreme patience. you need to be very precise when cutting the length of yarn and then place it accurately next to the last piece placed. The piece on display is practically perfect! It must have taken a lot of time.

It looks like something they made to worship their gods. maybe it is part of a ritual.

I think that this is a very beautiful and intricate piece of artwork. It was thoughtfully created and designed with much time and effort spent on details and patterns.

Look at the intense green colors or the avian-like archer midway through the right side of the painting. Far out and groovy, eh?
