Mounted on 20" x 16" (51 x 41 cm) acid free mounting board.

Cotton fabrics were stitched to a layered foundation of cotton fabric & quilt batting. Embroidered in the style of Crazy Patchwork with rayon and metallic threads. Spider web block printed with gold metallic textile paint. Antique gold finished spider charm.

This is a variation of the smaller 14"x 11" (36 x 28 cm) version (see the last photo). This collage is mirror image and larger variation from smaller piece. I refer to this one as the exploded variation since the edges are irregular, and appear fragmented or exploded in comparison to the smaller piece.

Inspirations and Influences.

"Spider myths occur in many cultures. In China a spider sliding down a thread symbolizes good fortune descending from heaven." From The Illustrated Book of Signs & Symbols, by Miranda Bruce-Mitford.

According to Native American Medicine Wheel, "the spider's eight legs represent the four winds of change and the four directions on the medicine wheel." Also the "spider is the female energy of the creative force. She weaves the web of fate representing the wheel of life." From Medicine Cards: the discovery of power through the ways of Animals, by J Sams & D. Carson.
