The first thing that comes to my mind when I hear the word "Mystical" is the Moon. Much of my work incorporates images of the moon. Here, I combined the "Wadjet" or "Eye of Horus" with the phases of the moon.
Horus was a sky god whose eyes, it was said were the sun and the moon. Ancient myth describes a battle between Horus and Seth in which Horus' right eye was torn out. Thoth, the god of magick, restored Horus' eye. It is said the myth relates to the waxing and waning of the moon, during which the moon appears to have been torn out of the sky before being restored once every lunar month.
The base fabric background is dyed with fiber reactive dyes. The eye is painted with Pro Chemical textile paint and Jacquard Lumiere.
The batting is Quilters Dream Puff and it is quilted with Superior's metallic and silk threads, and then mounted on stretcher bars.
