Ann Turley – Country – Emblems
To the Peruvian people, the spiral represents balance and is a symbol of unity, wholeness and completion. It also symbolizes the cycle of life as well as the path to the Creator. It is seen throughout Peru and is used to promote ethnic pride in the past, the present and the future. The spiral simultaneously stands for ancient Andean culture and modern Peruvian culture. My spiral is contructed in collage-style using commercial cottons and tulle.
