  Our Lady of Dong Lu, 中华圣母,中華聖母, fabric mosaic was inspired by an officially sanctioned painting of Our Lady of She-Shan which was created in the early 20th century.  This mosaic commemorates the Marian apparition which occurred in 1900 in DongLu, China.  It is meant to honor the story of hope and deliverance which is a source of inspiration to millions.

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.


Project Update – Empress Theodora

Empress Theodora

From the mosaics of the Basilica of San Vitale, Ravenna

I’ve been making steady progress on my fabric mosaic and have completed the most critical part, the face.  Sometimes I work on the face in the beginning, other times it comes at the very end.  I let each individual project direct its own course and just do what seems to feel right at each step of the way.  In this case, the face came last.  Expressions are difficult and Theodora was a very complex person, a saint, a sinner, an empress of the Roman/Byzantine Empire and perhaps one of the most powerful women in history. I’m not really sure what all that looks like, but hope that I have captured elements of her persona in this piece.

I have to design and complete a border and then it will be finished and ready to take in for a high resolution scan.

Please feel free to comment; your input is appreciated
