I began the tapestry sometime in the 1990s. There was an article in National Geographic Magazine in and around 1980s that I was influenced by, and thought would be an excellent adaptation to a tapestry work. I worked on the fine roping and stitching and that was done in two separate pieces. I decided that it needed a middle and did this wild and bold design to capture the transition between the elaborate stitching or cave-like presence of the piece. I used latch-hooking and rug-hooking techniques and interruption movement within the piece. The piece was done in four different parts. I wanted to have continuous movement, and of course, the influence of Native American spiritualism in the piece.
