This is a brilliant concept wonderfully executed by Sally Mavor. However ...

It says April 1955, and is dated 2007. But there are 54 figures ... yes pedantic, I agree ...

This piece of art reminds me of a prayer labryinth. A creative way to show progression that leads in one direction to a specific point.

That is so clever and you captured it well. I wonder if any of the cloth was taken from old "seasoned" favorites of hers.

I love this - so glad that I enlarged it!
I think there are 54 figures because of 1 husband and because of the baby figure for year 0 which is 1955!
