Bob: There is another circular weaving in this exhibit. Read the description of that weaving first. Then, look again at this weaving, trying to “see with the eyes of a weaver” and also “with the eyes of a mathematician.” While you may not be a weaver or mathematician, “try on” those eyes as you look at this weaving. Then think about how you express struggle, hózhó (balance), beauty, healing, connection, and spirituality in your life and with your unique perspective. Your eyes are an important part of this story.
