    This is an amazingly three-dimensional and powerfully archaic image. As a fellow printmaker, I’m trying to work out how you did it. Did you etch a photo to the plate then transform it with drypoint? Just being a nosy techie. No need to reply if it’s classified info :). Great work anyway.

    Marja-Leena: wonderful work! Thank you for posting this!

    I’d love to see it a little larger if that’s technically possible; qarrtsiluni editors, what are the image constraints here??

    That’s extraordinary.

    Thanks, everyone. I’m so pleased to be part of this wonderful collaboration amongst such great writers and visual artists.

    Natalie, you are right – it is a photo-etching primarily. After the etch, I added drypoint. The process is not unique so no secrets here!

    Wow. Very cool!

    Ya know, this blog is really posting some great stuff. Thanks to all the contributors – excellent work.

    I love how well this complements Dale’s “Two Finger Poems” below. That’s the kind of synergistic conjunction and dialogue that this blog was created for.

    Oh, good! I kept thinking that, but no one else mentioned it, so I decided I was just seeing the connection out of egotism. They seemed very much about the same thing, to me.

    There is such strength in this image, and yes, it does seem to be connected to Dale’s poem. The word “clutching” was one of the first that came to mind.

    Marja-Leena, you know that I admire your work bu tthis image is especally powerful — and aligned with Dale’s poem, it is really haunting. Thank you so much for contributing it – and I hope we will be seeing more from you on a regular basis! I also hope other artists or photographers may get inspired by a piece of poetry o prose and submit something – and the reverse, that writers might contribute a piece inspired by some artwork that appears here. Contributors also might work in tandem with another person to create a dual submission intentionally…

    Back here after being away for a few days, and catching up, I’m quite stunned about the connection with Dale’s poem! How exciting to have this synergy here indeed. Thanks Beth and everyone for the positive comments.

    This site is like prodigy central. I loved this piece. Very interesting to try to figure out visually, and quite captivating. Intriguing title.
