Gallery: We Are the Eighth Day
Art Title: We Are the Eighth Day
Original art by Melanie Weidner
Created July 2008 - 31 inch diameter
Fabric, ribbon, beads, thread, mounted on polystyrene
This fabric image is made of scraps from the Passion of the Earth series, all of which survived with me through a serious car accident in June 2005. Title inspired by the title of Elizabeth O’Connor’s book, The Eighth Day of Creation. In the Christian tradition, Creation was made in seven days. We human beings now co-create in an unfolding dance with God and the Universe– and so we are the eighth day.
