Broken Sigil is the third piece in my Stargate series (not counting the ATCs). It's good to work in a series, as you cannot put every idea racing around in your head into one piece. Working in this sequence, allowed me to explore, expand and use my knowledge of traditional embroidery and dimensional stitches in a more organic and contemporary manner. It also gave my imagination free rein.
Who among us have not seen the man-in-the-moon or sheep in fluffy, white clouds? Why not the fragment of a broken sigil partially buried the Martian sands? Sigil? If you've not read Game of Thrones, then a definition is required and a sigil is "an inscribed or painted symbol considered to have magical powers" Oxford Dictionary.
My sigil was created by making a couple of partial impressions on air dry polymer clay. When the clay was dried, I brushed the piece with Ranger's Perfect Medium, using my fingers rubbed on Pearl Ex powders, creating the feel of a fragment from an ancient shield.
