Passion Flower is a small piece of Fiber Art that is a blast of color and architecture. In 1569, Spanish explorers discovered passionflower in Peru. They believed the flowers symbolized Christ’s passion and indicated his approval for their exploration. Passionflower is found in combination herbal products used as a sedative for promoting calmness and relaxation. The passion-flower blossom varies in form from a shallow saucer shape to a long cylindrical or trumpet-shaped tube, producing at its upper border five sepals, five petals, and many threadlike or membranous outgrowths from the tube, which constitute the beautiful part of the flower, called the corona.
This art is framed using a fillet separating the fiber from painted canvas. The canvas is covered in a medium that includes glass beads. The glass lends a reflective sheen to the art.
