Geometric Mourner

Image of the embroidery

"Yesterday" naturally takes me back to my study as a classical archeologist. Early Greek painted pottery included huge (life sized) funeral vases. I have represented an Athenian Geometric vase in machine embroidery, and superimposed on it an image of the mourner from the same period, which is woven on a metal framework.
