They are finished...

Here they are, both mounted and wrapped:

© Diana Parkes, 2011. Tied to the House, left Descent, right Ascent. Each piece 30cm x 30cm / 12" x 12"; together 63cm x 33cm / 13" x 25". Silk and cotton cloth, dye, pigment, stitching, cord, painted boards.

My theme of the house shape is continued here. The title refers to being confined to the house, hence the wrappings. The stairs and figures relate to life, sometimes it is 'up' and other times 'down'.
