Utah Quilt Block

This is part of my quilt block series, in this case a nine patch quilt.   I am juxtaposing the ancient and the modern, the petroglyph with the pictograph.   The copper panels are deeply etched, like a petroglyph carved into stone.  The frame is beetle killed pine.   The center panel represents the famous Supernova petroglyph from Chaco Canyon.

Utah is a place where petroglyphs, jeeps and oil development come together.  This is about as close to a political piece as I do.
