    Title of Textile:Cruce de Caminos / Crossing Pathways
    Maker: Mary Ann O' Neill, Esther Vidal, Marta Moya and Elisa Covelo
    Country of Origin: Spain
    Year Produced: 2009
    Size (cm): Standard
    Materials: Scraps of fabric - natural and synthetic
    Type of Textile: Arpillera
    Description:

    This piece was created by a group of women who took part in the "Women's real lives" event for International Women's Day in March 2009. It reflects how this diverse group of women were inspired, provoked, and encouraged by their experiences in Derry in 2008 where, as well as seeing quilts and arpilleras from all over the world, they crossed paths with each other in the group as well as those they met at the event.

    This piece combines the traditional use of three-dimensional dolls made from scraps of fabric to represent the women with the innovative printing of photographs of a mural and arpillera onto fabric, which was then incorporated into the piece.
