In England

Sometimes I have no words. 

image description:  mature woman wearing running shoes and a spiral necklace stands beside a monumental piece of textile art by Sheila Hicks.  

The artwork is entitled Moroccan Prayer Rug.

It was created by Sheila Hicks in 1972 and is five and a half metres high.  It is hand knotted wool.  

Part of the retrospective exhibition at the Hepworth gallery in Wakefield, England.  

Sometimes life is amazing.

so glad you made it to England safe and sound ... I first wrote "have fun" but I suppose it might be more apt to say "hope you keep having this much memory making!"

Thank you so much for this image. I love the work of Sheila Hicks, but didn't know this piece. Seeing it hanging, with the scale evident from the self-portrait, is very moving.

So pleased you've shared this photo with us, the Moroccan Prayer Rug is absolutely amazingly beautiful, and so huge.
