Fearfully & Wonderfully Made

I've been working on a side project that is close to my heart, in light of human-trafficking issue around us. I could not imagine what the victims went through. I think it is the most horrific assault to a human being – body and soul – done by another. If I were to talk to one of these women, I really wouldn't know what to say, and my words will probably fall so short. This verse though, Psalm 139:14, is in my mind when I think about them, and I wish I could communicate its wonderful meaning to them. That their lives are not a mistake, that there is hope.

The concept and lettering were inspired by Alphonse Mucha's Art Nouveau style and the intricate Chinese silk embroidery. It takes thousands of hours and hundreds of different colored silk threads to sew an embroidered painting by hand. It's awe-inspiring, both in its process and result. I felt that this embroidery concept could represent the message I'd like to say. Each of these women, despite of what they've gone through, is a beautiful, precious human being – who was fearfully and wonderfully made by a God who loves her deeply.

I have 2 color versions I'm working on. I'm open to your input if you have any.
