The person who conceptualised and directed the creation of this masterpiece must have been a master at his craft.One assumes it was a man but I wonder if were a woman.
In any case the person's knowledge of material, architecture, Hindu iconography and sculpture must have been unparalled.

20th March.2017. I was looking to add a motif which would mark my visit to Odisha. I picked Jaganath. He's special to Odisha. He's the only Indian god who is worshipped along with his older brother and sister. Most Gods and Godesses have a consort but not Jaganath
The day was spent in airports. Flying from Bhubaneshwar to Chennai with a four hour wait in Hyderabad to catch a connecting flight. Time well spent working on the Jaganath motif.
The Jagannath motif is complete.I embroidered the pupils of his eyes and the motif was complete.
It was so hot in Chennai my brain seized functioning and I could only think of adding some cast on Stitch leaves.

A teaching assignment in Odisha took me away from the Blue Mountains for a good three weeks.
I carried the 1 Year of Stitches with me.
I seem to have come to a creative standstill. Only adding little Algerian eye flowers and Lazy Daisy leaves.
Didn't get a chance to update my blog all that time I was away.
How did March treat you? The teaching assignment went well and I spent a week with family, celebrating my mother's 80th birthday with a thanksgiving prayer and lunch.
