Series VI: The Book of Hours
Why image a Book of Hours? Because they are works of art and beauty. A Medieval devote tradition, ladies of the court carried their little prayer books fully illustrated, handwritten, and kept hidden in embroidered purses. The holy verses from the gospels contained the Hours of the Virgin from Matins to Compline. The prayers were recited every hour on the hour as a reminder throughout the day of their service and relationship to God and all that was considered divine. This series which includes my love for the Pre-Raphaelite art and artists is my rendition of a 21th Century Book of Hours.
