I was going to do just the indigo blue “crackle” stitching on this lovely figure, but decided that since she is a mother archetype for me, that the roots could strengthen the story. The moon will reflect on her, and she on the moon, and the mountains and river will enter the story easily as well.
This indigo dyed grevillea ecoprint could be one of my favourite fabrics now. Did i subconsciously choose the perfect layout for the roots across her? They twine across her body, cross over her breasts, even mirror her face. Only my subconscious knows.
