Take My Yoke and Learn of Me

Medium: Weathered wood cross, Vintage Mexican Yoke, 19th Century German Bible, rusted hardware, waxed linen thread, Nepalese Paper, Ethiopian Coptic Christian stitching

Artist Statement: I found the wood for this cross while hiking in the BLM Land near my home in Medanales, NM. The sun and low humidity does some amazing work on wood left exposed for a number of years in the desert. The yoke was given to me by a friend who found it in an abandoned barn in Mexico. Together this weathered cross and yoke remind me of Matthew 11:29 where we read Jesus saying, “Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart; and you shall find rest for your souls.”
