Crochet thread and 3D printed figure

Inspired by traditional crochet crinoline ladies, this is a pared-down version of the traditional emblem of dainty femininity.

Two crochet blankets, each with a prayer, are suspended from the ceiling of the gallery to form a passage. The cream blanket has a child's prayer for bedtime and the black blanket has a passage from a funeral rite that likens death to sleep.
