Persephone’s Rope (2)
Human hair gifted from people around the world, 17 donated rings, wood, thread. 8 metres of hair rope, when coiled 30 x 30cm
“For Persephone’s Rope people from around the world gifted locks of their hair to be braided and stitched into rope as an act of unity and love. Each length of the hair rope is made during different times over three years and linked together by 17 well-worn rings gifted by lovers, referencing our connectedness to each other and the world around us. The act of stitching and binding can be a meditative quiet time to contemplate, bless, hope and reflect, while holding together stories in history.”
