Rich with symbolism, this abstract sculpture of an African weaver balancing atop a cracked world embodies the quest for enlightenment. The fabric represents knowledge itself, being snatched from the winds and deciphered on the loom by the human figure.
The piece adorns the entrance to the Haywood County Public Library in honor of the former library director Katherine Armitage. It is mounted on marble reclaimed from the original library that stood on this site.
