Desmond Mpilo Tutu OMSG CH GCStJ was a South African Anglican bishop and theologian, known for his work as an anti-apartheid and human rights activist.


Bishop Desmond Tutu, change maker and valued leader, is the eighth in my new series "Everyday Saints".

This piece is done on a 12x12 cloth then mounted on a 12x12 frame for hanging. A mix of sequins, embroidery, and beads.


I had just finished listening to "The book of JOY" on audible for the second time when I heard that the Desmond Tutu passed. I felt like I had just sat in his presence for the past few weeks, absorbing his words, and those of the Dalai Lama, for the 10+ hours that comprised this book. The comfort of his joy, his faith, his being was almost overwhelming. Waves of gratitude passed through me as I realized that he and my life mate cat, Sam, had passed so very close to the same time on the same exact day... half a globe away from each other. 

This was not the first or only impression that Bishop Desmond Tutu made in my life, but it surely is the one that will last.

The flags are sewn into a brilliant mosaic of sequins and beads that create the story of the spirit which they depict. Containing tens of thousands of hand stitched sequins infused with prayer and energy they are beautiful collectables.
