    Shakyamuni Buddha: the historical Buddha with scenes from his life
    (2006-11-14T19:01:52Z) George Mason University
    Shakyamuni Buddha, the sage of the Shakya clan, is seated in the midst of scenes from his final, historical life. The golden-skinned Buddha touches the earth with his right hand, a traditional gesture signifying the moment of his enlightenment. In his left hand he holds a begging bowl filled with rice shaped into a relic mound (stupa). Fourteen vignettes around the primeter of the painting depict the life of the Buddha as a mortal, beginning at the top and proceeding in a clockwise direction.

    The Heritage Quilt
    (2006-11-14T19:01:19Z) George Mason University
    This is a pamphlet describing The Heritage Quilt. The quilt, which was completed in 1984, was designed by Joanne Johnson in a variation of the Baltimore Album quilt style and was aplliquéd and quilted more than 30 Northern Virginia Women. Frances Griffith was the master quilter. The 10-foot-by-12-foot quilt contains 35 15-inch squares, each crafted with 36 quilting stitches per square inch. Quatrefoils separate the images, and a traditional swag-and-tassel border surrounds the entire design. Quilt is installed at the Center for the Arts Concert Hall. The front cover of this pamphlet contains a typo. In the first paragraph, which lists the quilters who took part in this project, Carolyn Peterson is identified incorrectly as "Marilyn Peterson".
