"The Spinster"
handwoven tapestry, shaped
65 in. x 60 in.

The Spinster is an iteration of Clotho, the first of the Fates. The goddess "spins a yarn", telling the story of a person's life, before turning it over to her sisters to measure and cut. Her symbols are there to engage our imagination and encourage contemplation. She sits on the edge of the Sea, near The Town That Shall Not Be Named. She brings inspiration into our lives and encourages us to seek the Mystery.
