My March Offerin'...

The New Colossus
Not like the brazen giant of Greek fame,
With conquering limbs astride from land to land;
Here at our sea-washed, sunset gates shall stand
A mighty woman with a torch, whose flame
Is the imprisoned lightning, and her name
Mother of Exiles. From her beacon-hand
Glows world-wide welcome; her mild eyes command
The air-bridged harbor that twin cities frame.
"Keep ancient lands, your storied pomp!" cries she
With silent lips. "Give me your tired, your poor,
Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free,
The wretched refuse of your teeming shore.
Send these, the homeless, tempest-tost to me,
I lift my lamp beside the golden door!"

Meet... A Primitive Statue of Liberty.

~This unique, one of a kind Liberty make-do is made from stained, baked, painted and sanded cotton.

~She is securely attached to a vintage wood beehive bobbin.

~Her dress, underskirt and sash are a lovely green floral print.

~Her draped sash is secured to her dress.

~She's approx. 21" tall.

Close up of her...

~Artist pencils were used for her somber yet resolute eyes.

~She has a needle sculpted nose and satin stitched lips.

~Her crown of seven rays represent the seven seas and continents of the world. It is stiffened and attached.

Her sign...

~She holds in her needle sculpted hands a sign which reads "Give me your tired, your poor, your huddled masses yearning to breathe free..."

~It is made from a barn roof wood shingle from our 150+ year old dairy barn.
