Bella Kaplan – Country – Landscape
As I have already told, my last trip was to Egypt and I am still under the influence of the place. I chose to create the Nile as a local landscape
The Nile has been the lifeline of civilization in Egypt since the stone age , with most of the population and all of the cities of Egypt resting along those parts of the Nile valley lying north of Aswan.
The Nile is a lifeline to Egypt and an important source of water for the desert environment
It is abundant in ships as well as fishing boats and full of traffic. The surrounding landscape varies, sometimes very dry and sometimes full of vegetation. In the background, you can see mountains in some places.
My quilt is hand dyed, fused and machine quilted.
