the meek shall

The outer shell of the cocoon was formed with rusty barbed wire; then wire screen was cut to fit inside. The screen was wrapped with yarn, rust-dyed muslin (from Swatch Exchange), and random wire; then inserted into the cocoon shell. I created an area to designate where the moth emerged by cutting through the yarn and wire and inserting screen and muslin there. The moth was created by disassembling two old drawer pulls, which were painted, sanded for highlights, and dusted with a mixture of rust and copper glitter. The pulls were then attached with copper wire to a long screw. The cocoon hangs by a chain from inter-twined branches attached to a wood base which was papier-mached and embellished with paint, bark, dubbing, rust, and words.
