Who Is He?
This is an assemblage piece, one of the first. Actually I've only done a few so far. This one came together after just getting a man's valet tray, at least I think that is what it is, and wanting to do something with it. In a matter of just an hour or so, it was done. The bottom is a domino box that slides open to reveal a withered knot from a tree branch, with the roman numeral 3 to symbolize the trinity. Most of the symbolism will be obvious so I won't bore you with all of it. There is a glare in the photo and it looks like I need to do better with the Windex on cleaning the old mirror behind it. I set up the vintage cross-stitched silhouettes on either side to represent our search for truth.
