ANAT - Temple Scripts Series Wall Panel.
Original works of hand woven fine art, Temple Scripts is a series, a triptych, of 3 related panels. Aena, Anat, and Inanna, are named for pre-patriarchal Goddesses of the ancient Middle East. See last image for the complete triptych.
Weaving is written in code, very similar to musical scores. If you understand the code you can manipulate patterns, the way musicians write new music. I wrote new weaving code. That is how I created my Temple Scripts series. I started with the code for a tradtional weaving pattern and as I began to weave, I let my Muses, who are Goddesses, guide my work.
The panels represent the wisdom messages of one of three names given to the Mother Goddess from three ancient cultures. Her wisdom is extracted from the walls and pillars of ancient temples. It was imparted to me through the osmosis of art making and my affinity to the mystical wonders of female deities. Each panel is related in basic code format and colors; variations in design reflect the dialects of each of the three cultures - message from the Mother Goddess.
Temple Script panels are excellent for your meditation room. As you study the coded patterning, Her wisdom words may be imparted to you. Goddess wisdom that I channel is always positive, grounded in Love and Light.
ANAT - Temple Scripts is a complex structure created on a floor loom. I used black linen and
purple/magenta cotton to create the design. All components, all design elements are the result of my visualization process and ability to translate code into outstanding fine art and are woven simultaneously. Nothing is added later.
How long did it take? Weeks to physically produce, with months of planning. ANAT is, of course, one of a kind. Weaving is a long, complicated process of years of experience, inspired design, visualization, complex calculations, detailed set up/loom programming, creative weaving/inspiration, finishing touches. (Plus cataloging, photographing...)
