Some Final Thoughts.
To further the textures of the vintage carpets I added rayon threads and remnants of satin sarong ribbons.
The Sacred Heart symbolizes the deepest love that can exist in the Roman Catholic Practice. It is to symbolize Jesus Christ’s Actual Heart and His love for all of humanity. I find the images riveting and intriguing. May the layers portrayed in these art pieces comfort you and encourage you to acts of sacrificial love.
