Ruth Cozen Snyder and "Maypoles"
Ruth- Thank you for a lovely and unexpected Mayday morning! Such a lovely body (pun) of work. And, as you mentioned, inspired by the maypole motif. And thank you for the instruction to find the living Maypole just down the street on Sunset Blvd. (photo below). Unbelievable!
Here are some links for your granddaughter to show to her that yours is a 13,000 year old oeuvre:
