The Female Hero

2003
---------------------------------------
This silkscreen charts the female hero's journey onto the chart of the hero's journey
in Joseph Campbell's
The Hero with a Thousand Faces.  After the silkscreens were
printed and heat-treated to set the inks, I blind-embossed (with no ink) a woodcut
of a particularly beautiful spiralling knothole onto the prints.
