About This Artwork

A diptych honoring the cedar tree, a universal “super tree” with cultural roots in Lebanon, and a majestic, god like presence  that crosses all cultures. The mighty cedars stand high but grow horizontally- and so as a diptych, with embroidered layers of loose hanging threads, these two cushions seek to capture up close the grand tiered silhouette of a cedar.
