Flag (began design in 1998, think I finished the piece in 2000.) This is the banner I hang on my tent when I'm in Celtworld. People have often asked me if it's a dreamcatcher, and it always takes me by surprise, since it wasn't intended to look like one. The central design (the greeny-bits) is a triskele made out of the stylized owls that are my main personal sigil; then black & red crows for Preachain, and the Saami sigil that I paint around my eye (I don't know what it is; I just know it's mine.) It's cotton embroidery on linen, stitched to a grapevine wreath with artificial sinew. The bead-strings have wood and amber and moss agate and bloodstone and elk teeth and antler bits and west African bells, maybe some other stuff, I don't remember. And crow feathers.
