“While creating this textile object and drawing, my eyes and thoughts passed: a caterpillar, a pilgrim spinning his own temporary settlement and ancient symbols used by old civilizations around the world for good luck, auspiciousness, the sun, a wheel, infinity, eternity, continuing creation, a collective unconsciousness, the universe in our own spiral galaxy and to evoke sacred forces”.
