8143 – The Tall Ones   ($68.81)

Width: 9"   Length: 10"

Materials/Techniques: Silk, hand quilted, collage, metallic and cotton thread, silk binding, ornamentation pin and cotton backing.

Artist Statement: I find giraffes majestic, regal and wise. Why I chose to hand quilt with metallic thread I don't know, especially when you can't see that much of it, however, it is there. My reason for choosing this subject is that the giraffe must have a different perspective of the world from his height. This must be much like the viewpoint of the Alzheimer’s patient when suffering with the disease. The giraffe receives attention and appreciation for his stature but Alzheimer’s patients are rarely appreciated for who they are.

Dedication: Dedicated to my tall friend who is suffering with the disease.
