starry night (contemplation)

 Contemplation is the highest form of activity.

Two kiku herringbone stars, interwoven, at each pole — created with colors to evoke van Gogh's painting "The Starry Night."

Thread wrap in dark navy blue; S8 division in metallic gold; embroidery in three shades of blue, three shades of yellow, and cream. The quote from Aristotle is in the bell box, with eleven brass rings. Circumference: 10.25 inches / 26 cm; diameter: 3.25 inches / 8.27 cm. Completed 3 October 2011 (no. 037).

Sold to benefit Kiva.org.
