My friend Fiona, who knows about South America, told me that my “devils” are designs from the famous Paracas textiles from Peru, – and they are not devils but shamans! The textiles are among the top 10 textile wonders of the world, and some were illegally sold/bought from Peru, where they were found in 1920 ….. and ended up in Gothenburg in Sweden. And somehow a book with the designs transformed into cross stitching patterns ended on my table in remote Denmark in the late 1960’ties!!
Cross stitching was a good thing to learn at that time – at least if you were not part of the youth rebellion.
The mayor of Gothenburgh is negotiating with Peru to bring the textiles back to Peru …..now…..
I will make a few more small pictures with …shamans. Wonder what they want to tell me?
