Harriet Tubman (born Araminta Ross, c. March 1822 ? – March 10, 1913) is the thirteenth in my "Everyday Saints" series. Abolitionist, activist, and later Union Scout she mapped a path to freeing the enslaved in way that forever changed the course of this country.
This piece is done on a 12x12 cloth then mounted on a 12x12 frame for hanging. A mix of sequins, embroidery, and seed beads.
Harriet Tubman has always been a beacon of light in times of toughness. Whenever in doubt in life I can just think of her and all she overcame, all while helping others without hesitation. Sky is a non-traditional sequin flag (drapo) artist who blends styles, techniques, and her unique interpretations to create one of a kind spiritual art pieces. Each flag depicts the symbol or image of the spirit to which it is devoted and can take anywhere for a few months to years to complete. The flags are sewn into a brilliant mosaic of sequins and beads that create the story of the spirit which they depict. Containing tens of thousands of hand stitched sequins infused with prayer and energy they are beautiful collectables.
