glimpses

friday evening
 the decaying corpse
of a raccoon from last summer
someone made a tiny golden offering
north country boro!

Lately I have been dyeing bones, I wrap them with leaves and string or wool and pop them in the dyepot they come up beautiful I will take a pic today and put them up on the blog. That racoon would be mighty fine in a new cloak of colour. Very La Loba.

the juxtaposition of the corpse with it's kernel of corn--a last meal tribute--and the boro'd work clothes having a new life--those elements together: an epic journey, a visual short story.

Velma Bolyard said...

ms., i like where you take the story

i need to see this dyed bones idea--it sounds right up my alley!

im liking the layered theme here: critter adding a kernel to a critter, patches layered on tears and thin spots, people's ideas layering too

joni, do you know trace's site--soewn earth? i might try it out, but mostly save bones to make folders and tools with.
