Quilt Acrylic When I created this piece, I wanted to honor my ancestors and my inspiration came from the American flag. I used a series of interconnected forms to represent this theme. The circle of women in the center is a symbol of wisdom, creativity, and the complexities of life. How we as a community are intertwined and intermixed culturally? Think about all the women who have inspired you in your own life? At the bottom of the piece, is the melting pot that combines all of our cultures sitting on a sea of American blue. At the top is the striped skyline that parallels to the stripes of the American flag.
