Sacred Cloth

Sacred Cloth

Sacred is a word that means different things to different people. To some, sacred may mean silence in nature, and to others, it may mean wrapping trees with orange cloth in South Africa. Embedded in the woven structures of cloth is a history that reveals a story about people, culture, and cultural identity and rooted in beliefs within a sacred context. Below is a brief video of clips that were gathered from Utube that reflect a diverse way of looking at cloth in a different light. The white rectangular pieces of cloth are Haiku poems written on cloth like prayers. There are 365 of them. The second one is of a red cloth moving in the wind in South Africa. The third clip is cloth wrapped trees in South Africa, and then a whirling dervish, and Leonardo da Vinci’s idea for a flying machine.  The links to all of the Utube videos are below. It takes about 3 or 4 minutes to load, so push play, and then you will have to wait.
