Artist's Description

Created: 1998

Words:

My soul magnifies the Lord
My spirit rejoices in God my Saviour

Background:

Based on the words attributed to Mary, the mother of Jesus. Her praises to God for His blessing and wonder at the great responsibility He has given to her.

The figure in ‘Magnificat’ was designed to be deliberately androgenous so that anyone could confidently repeat Mary’s words.

The woven strands rising like incense smoke from the vibrantly coloured figure are prayers coming from all parts of the body to symbolise that prayer is an energetic, body, mind and spirit activity.

The plant drawn behind the wording grows upwards to represent the fruitfulness of a life steeped in prayer and wholly given to God’s purpose.
