15,557 - What Do Animals Think? ($41.57)

Width: 11.5" Length: 9"

Materials/Techniques: Cotton fabrics donated by Carol Lotta and Delaine Malsbury were machine quilted, and fabric animals given to me by Opal Vega were appliquéd and outline-stitched. Thanks to them and to Deborah Cassety for the buttons!

Artist Statement: As with my quilt "What Do Cows Think?", I was reflecting on what some researchers say -- that we cannot think of a thing unless we have a WORD for that thing. The tiger has a limited vocabulary ("Grrr"), but folk tradition says that the poor giraffe cannot speak at all. So his thought balloon is blank. Maybe this quilt is funny only if you share my warped sense of humor, but it does show how very odd (and people-centric) that theory is.
