Dr. Nitobe's Garden of Peace

Dr. Nitobe's Garden of Peace (detail), 2000

Pruned arboreal patterns and encoded Eastern spirituality make Nitobe Garden, on the grounds of the University of British Columbia in Vancouver, Canada, a rare and special destination. After the weaving was complete, Docents of the Garden saw the tapestry and informed the artist that the seven-story pagoda she had woven into the centre field is linked to the Japanese festival of Tanabata, the festival of the Weaver.
