self portrait

This is a self portrait I knitted in 2001, six foot long socks, of Icelandic Lopi wool (my maternal grandmother was Icelandic). An homage to Louise Bourgeois, whose sculpture “Legs” I saw in Montreal many years ago as part of an exhibition called “Stations of the Cross”. Hers was the piece that represented the station of the crucifixion.
