Many Religions One God

~Many Religions, One God~
Medium: Mixed
I found this stick while out hiking 2 yrs ago. I saw it and thought...this is art!
But, I had no idea of what to do with it.
Then about 3 weeks ago I had the vision of these flags hanging on the stick.
It was inspired by Tibetan Prayer Flags.
I cut the flags of muslin, stamped the border around the edges then painted the religious symbols on each in burnt umber acrylic paint. I strung the flags on waxed string with metal beads separating them.
The symbols in order are....
Zoroastrian (Zoroaster), Hindu (Krishna),Buddhist (Buddha), Jewish (Moses),
Christian (Jesus), Muslim (Mohammad), Baha'i (Baha'u'llah)

This is hanging in our family room :)
