I am very excited about becoming a finalist in the Blake Prize for religious art.
I entered this lamb shroud I had worked into with sacred delek from Arnhem Land and silk stitching.
I called the work lamb of God (Monaro Country)

'Lamb_of_God'_2011-12

'Lamb_of_God'_2011-12

My 50 word statement to explain the religious significance of Lamb of God 2012:

In the bible the Lamb of God is sacrificed to remove the sins of the world.
This work is a decomposition print made by a lamb that died in spring 2011 amidst new life in the Monaro sheep-farming district. Sacred white ochre indicates the lamb’s role as spiritual testament.
