Fiber, wet felt by Liz Canali
(17 in. x 15 in.)
"Remember "Sticks and stones may break my bones, but words will never hurt me". If you were at all a little different as a child you were probably taunted by these words. The rhyme was used as a defense against name-calling and verbal bullying. Now I look at sticks and stones as an act of balance and patience. White marble is believed to have strong metaphysical qualities of grounding and calming. It provides for strength of self control and mastery of thought. This piece is a continuation of my "Lore Of Stones" series. My representation is made entirely from wool using the wet felting method and various stiffening techniques."
