NOTE: I came across a brand new piece of Kente Cloth which
is hand woven in Africa by the Asante people of Ghana. The major
part of the pattern is the "Se Wo Beka Me Ho Asem A Ma Me Wo
Adwa Na Tena Ase" design which literally means "If you
have something to say about me, let me first give you a stool to
sit on." It represents and invitation to be truthfu and not
Being an anthropologist and an artist, the piece made me think of
Reverend King and his peacefulness, as well as his candor. I wanted
to have him entering the piece and raising his hand in a gesture
of welcome or farewell. It seemed to me that he has always been
passing through and touching our lives, even after his death.
THE ARTIST: Pam has a Masters of Fine Arts from Goddard
College in Vermont. Most of her work has been sold locally (as Kurt
Vonnegut always encouraged artists and writers to do). Four of her
pieces hang in a private collection in Denmark, a smattering in
homes thoughout the U.S. and Canada, and one was buried with its
owner. "Maybe art is all you really can take with you."
