Truth will Set you Free, Joan of Arc

Jane M Mason

Hooked in wool, wool yarn, novelty fabrics and silk on linen. Some hand dyed wool.

A narrative hooked tapestry featuring Joan of Arc as a symbol of humility, courage and purity. The border features pussycats wearing pink hats and the hashtag #METOO. The Latin says ‘I am not afraid…I was born to do this.’ The dog at Joan’s side stands for faithfulness; the sheep for her role as shepherdess. The white horse stands for her trust in her path: she commanded an army from horseback even though she did not know
how to ride a horse until she was inspired by her faith.
