Amulets and Talismans

I have a shared exhibition running at the Hodgson Loom Gallery, Laxey until 11th August. The theme is Amulets and Talismans and their historical backgrounds. The pieces are worked in a variety of media.
Below left, is an image of the Eye of Horus produced using photo transfer and chain stitch. The right hand
photo is part of a larger work depicting herbs that were thought to protect against the plague. I painted the flowers and transferred them onto silk paper incorporating plant dyed fibres using Ario transfer paper and embellished with machine stitch.
