Wall Carpet
by Polly Livshits ©2012

A Moldavian says: »Home is where my carpet lies«. In the old days women weaved their stories in carpets and handed the finished piece down to their children. My carpet-illustrations show Moldavia as home, mixing both old memories and new impressions from my latest visit. The carpet depicts three trees of life as a basis for all other stories. With the help of this 'language of images' an old home can be transported to a new home, from Moldavia to Germany.
