|Recovering What Was Lost Paper Collage © Abby Sernoff 2012|
The topic for this weeks Illustration Friday is "Lost" My entry has a little bit of a spin on this theme - this collage is actually titled Recovering What Was Lost. This was one of the first collages I made when I began creating art roughly 5 years ago (to read about more about how I came to start making art click here)
In animal symbology, some cultures believe the crane is a symbol for recovering what was lost. This has a deep personal meaning to me, as it was only through illness that I discovered myself to be an artist. Something that had been completely lost to me was now found.
