Our Lady Of Weeksville
Part II


OUR LADY OF WEEKSVILLE


There is a stoic pride that is captured through the textiles chosen, to bring to light the life of people of heroic character that we rarely get to honor. The jacket was created with select remnants of precious cloth, velvet and fine trim.  The jacket exudes a sense of military accents in the sash, the cadet shoulder embellishment, exclusive braided hand attached trim, to which I added  indigenous textiles and used hand dyed art prints to represent the Original Ones, mud cloth for grounded foundation, and a dual hat provided height.  Corn cob hat crown with a little black fascinator adorning the top.  All topped off  with a touch of blue turquoise feathers to accentuate the lightness of freedom and permitted flight.  I carry a touch of blue throughout all of the series to remind us of the power of the desire for freedom.  One ways to acquire it then, would have  been by drowning in the deep blue sea before enslavement or finally freedom by death of plantation life and going home to the heavens in the sky.
