CROWN OF ATHENA
crochet, rust
12 x 12 x 16

Constructed from crocheted band that has been distressed and patinated with rust, this artwork is named for the Greek Goddess Athena, goddess of war, handicraft and wisdom. The swirling tire tread bands are like thoughts twirling. It resembles something that can be worn on the head as protection in battle with a feminine peeking out of the lace handicraft seen at the bottom of the form.
