Dimensions & Information

A word from the artist - The moon, the lunatic, and the divine -  I used poppies and a lotus flower because I wanted to talk about the relationship between madness or addiction and transcendence, and how I feel like the two are often connected in ways that we may not fully understand. They are both growing from the same bobcat skull, as cats have long been guardians to other realms, and I like to think of them as metaphorical gatekeepers to some of the worlds inside of us as well. The moon and her phases have been associated with many rituals of self-exploration worldwide, as well as odd and unusual behaviour as the moon gets full.  


For me, this piece is about mental health as a hero's journey, in a sense, where the hero must journey into the other world/nether world to learn something profound about themselves, the world, and life and then return - Emerald Barkley.

Presentation of the colored grid PDF pattern

This unique pattern uses matching DMC floss colors to fill in each corresponding grid cell. There is a symbol overlay to assist further and guide you on your stitching journey. Where the DMC floss color is particularly dark, we use a white symbol, so it is still easily visible.
