Description : 
The Thread Project: One World, One Cloth The green color of Weaving Reconciliation symbolizes new life rising from the ashes. Numerous threads and stories of reconciliation intersperse the green panels. One thread, a yellowed fiber from the Cambodian Killing Fields arrived with the message, "I dedicate this thread to all who died there." In the same batch of threads, a very white bandage from rural Iowa arrived from women who prepare bandages to send overseas. Somewhere,within the greeness of Weaving Reconciliation, the Cambodian and Iowa threads are knotted snuggly togehter, a gesture honoring those who bandage the world's brokenness and those who retaliate, not with their fists, but with their hearts.
