A page, as if lifted from some ancient source recently unearthed, this drawing is full of detail and surface delight. Lines and lines of tiny dots of ink mimic words, their meaning no longer decipherable....even the drawing at the right, presumably meant to illustrate some point in the text is a mystery to us now. There will come a time when the wisdom of our own day will no longer be decipherable to those who come after us in thousands of years.

Drawing is made on handmade paper with pencil lines and dots of ink. The page is dipped in beeswax which transforms the paper and enriches the marks. The little drawing on the right is a fragment from another left over drawing in my studio and has been stitched onto the page. The piece has been stitched to another backing sheet for durability and to make framing easier.

Book page measures approximately 6" x 4" and will come carefully packaged and ready for you to frame or display as you desire!

Thanks so much for browsing MissouriBendStudio....feel free to contact me with questions!
