Prayer leaves from Rosemary Buswell

Land art by Rosemary Buswell
Welcome Rosemary Buswell!  She created this wonderful piece a few years ago, and wanted to share it with us.

Here's what Rosemary wrote: "This piece was inspired by Balinese Prayer Flags, and created to express feelings about humanity, art, nature and spirituality, for a Land Art Exhibition entitled 'Healing'. It consists of Seven 9ft high bamboo poles, with real leaves which have been pressed, left natural on one side, and decorated with images and quotes on the other, and then laminated, so giving a fresh lease of life to the leaves with messages of hope and strength. It is called 'Have you ever considered turning over an old leaf'? It was originally 'weathered' outdoors in 2008 in the UK, and the piece has since been repaired and revitalized, and was then exhibited again in Wales, UK in 2010. I donated it to this last show, where it will remain outdoors until it eventually weathers into disintegration."
