a blessing to the village

'A Blessing to the Village'
Wallhanging 34'' x 34''

This quilt was commissioned by Bremanger Arts and Crafts Association as a gift to 'Haugetun', a collective for the elderly in the village.
The main motif is the Bremanger village crowned by a rainbow. The smaller pictures are old photos of local people going about their daily work in their fishing boats and on farms. On Sundays they dressed up and socialized, no matter how busy they were.
Just as the rainbow is a sign of blessing, the older generation laid the fountations for the welfare society which we are blessed with now.

Large quilt in two panels commissioned for a new sports hall. Hanging together, the two panels measure approx. 2,75 m x 1,65 m.
