The handprints of thirteen of my women friends encircle a jeweled world whose labyrinthine forms are mythical female figures woven by Kayabi Indians of Mato Grosso, Brazil. The title is from the song “Prayer of the Children,” composed by Kurt Bestor during the war in Bosnia. “Reaching hands with nothing to hold on to, but hope for a better day, a better day.”
