58) Burrow by Angela Morley, companion to 58bee Andrena congruens, the Long-fringed Mining Bee
The overall shape of this woven piece is an abstraction of man's greedy hand reaching into the ground symbolising its role in the destruction of habitat.
I speculate on the shape of the underground burrows dug out by the Long-fringed
Mining Bee, typically 5 chambers, one per egg. Sand and chalk particles reflect the
habitat; New Zealand flax symbolises the strength and fragility of the bee
New Zealand Flax, chalk, sand, willow pollen, willow catkins
