After considerable thought I finally settled on a design to provide a finished border for my fabric mosaic of Theodora.  It seemed fitting that Theodora, a symbol of the power and glory of western civilization , should be framed within the softly scalloped edges of eastern arches.  This is meant to point to the exotic and complex blend of western and eastern influences which shaped the Byzantine Empire.

For a close-up view of the work, you can view Theodora on RemnantWorksYoutube.
