"Wives of Henry VIII" - Six Panel folding mixed media ATC


This piece was traded with Rob in Mansfield, England for his group of Henry's
six wives ( http://www.flickr.com/photos/thornycourt/485532832/). My interest in these ladies was initiated by Riet van Piet's beautiful group (http://www.flickr.com/photos/riet/sets/72157594469180726/).Riet is from the Netherlands and does incredible embroidery and beadwork. Each of these groups are such unique interpretations of a single theme !

Wow! These are soo cool! I love reading biographies of kings and queens - have read several about henry's wives - individually and as a group. One of my favorite historical figures is Catherine of Aragon - she was one tough cookie.

Great piece! King Hal wasn't the world's best husbands was he?

Indeed - Hal changed his mind...
a LOT: and when he did, the heads
went flying!

this is just beautiful ... I love the way each panel has its own identity, yet is definitely integral to the whole.

I also liked the cards you received in return - very interesting and nice.

I'm glad I got to see these!
