Spirit Tapestries

"Noah's Arc" detail, by Savitri Bess

When I weave a tapestry for someone, it becomes a partnership.

I draw from many threads—meditation visions, archetypes, ancient cultures and mythologies, psychology and spirituality, even the person's astrological birth chart.

The act of creating the weaving is like an archeological discovery of soul. One can contemplate the finished tapestry in the same way one would a mandala or sacred object.
