the aim of art
The aim of art is to represent not the outward appearance of things, but their inward significance.
One of my favorites—inverse kiku herringbone.
Thread wrap in purple; S10 division with guidelines removed. Embroidery in four shades of sea-greens. The quote by Aristotle is in the bell box along with brass rings that make a quiet traditional rattle. Circumference: 11 inches / 28 cm; diameter: 3.5 inches / 8.9 cm. Completed 7 November 2012 (no. 206).
