I combined beach pottery with repurposed wood and nails to construct the Desert Abbas and Ammas. I ve always stood in awe in front of the magbitude of this people that left everything behind to search for God in the most desolated and unfriendly places.
- I painted with acrylic colors the the triangular hermits face in the beach pottery tile
- I used a brownish (like sepia) color to depict mothers and the fathers (a crowd of saints) on the repurposed construction wood
- I kept the old nails that were nailed on wood
- Varnished and mounted a hanger on the back
The Desert Fathers and Mothers are packaged as a gift with some mini extras of our shop
