Tree of Life

Recently, I was visiting friends in Kentucky and we went for a drive to see a restored Shaker Village in the town of Pleasant Hill, which is in a rural area of Kentucky. They had a wonderful exhibition of modern-day quilts -- based on themes from the Shaker art.
If you are familiar with the Shaker furniture, you know that they lived simple and utilitarian lives, as can be seen in these 2 quilts.
I wanted to share these quilts, which I find quite compelling because they remind me of "the tree of life" in our own tradition.
