our imagination flies (2)

Our imagination flies — we are its shadow on the earth.
— Vladimir Nabokov (1899–1977)

Like nos. 40, 45, 60, & 62 — I've come to think of this as the "dragonfly eye" pattern, for lack of any other name. I tried something different this time — with a grid of 7 x 7, I kept wrapping until all of the thread wrap was hidden by the grid.

Golden yellow-orange thread wrap; embroidery in violet, butter yellow, with an obi & bundles in purple. The quote by Nabokov is in the bell box along with 9 brass rings. Circumference: 10.125 inches / 25.5 cm; diameter: 3.22 inches / 8.11 cm. Completed 9 December 2011 (no. 073).
