Art Hanging

A mother with her child on her back looks out from a river’s edge, waiting for her husband to return. The husband can be seen in the distance, sitting in a kayak. The artist appliquéd felted wool cloth, called Stroud cloth, on a wool background to represent the figures, and embellished them with bead embroidery and feather stitch embroidery to suggest the colours and textures of the Arctic tundra in the fall.
