Rome Triptych

I started this project last summer after returning from Rome.  It consists of three 10" x 10" hooked canvases framed in a triptych series.  Went back to it in August and finally finished them in white wooden boxes.  The idea was to create a panel of wool snapshot memories of our adventures in Rome.  Alex, Wade and I each selected photos of ourselves and various artifacts we especially loved.  Then I hooked them into this series using my scrap materials.

My canvas contains a photo taken of me at the Dionysus House of Mysteries at Pompeii.  A clay sculpture of Demeter and a marble of Athena.  Wade's canvas contains David, Venus, and Galileo. Wade's photo is one of him sporting a hat he bought in a Roman bazaar.  Alexander's canvas has the famous mosaic of Alexander the Great and an ivory mask of Apollo.  Alexander is sporting a cap that he bought in Rome at a men's store, and wore almost every day on our trip.
