XII. TIBETAN YANTRA BEANBAG


Double strand Persian wool on 14 mesh canvas, 3 3/8 x 3 3/8 x 1 1/2"
Continental stitch in all four directions
Approximately 8,434 stitches, 1989





Done in the blues, reds, browns and beiges of a tribal rug this double vajara design was inspired by a picture of a 17th century Nepalese manuscript illustrated with mandala yantras in The Art of Tantra by Philip Rawson.

Each area is a variation on the same design. It was quickly stitched in October, November, 1989 in Seattle and Los Angeles in preparation for my first major exhibit. I am particularly fond of its colors, which must be seen in the wool, so to speak, to appreciate their subtlety.
