I brought the completed parochet/ark curtain to the school yesterday. The girls were excited to see the finished parochet. They loved seeing how close it is to the rough sketch we had come up with together in September.
Although I am not in love with the ark, I do love how the placement of the ark in front of the windows, with Central Park’s trees visible looks so beautiful with the parochet. The view outside of the window frames the parochet in a wonderful way.
The girls begged to touch the piece. I take that as a good sign. My friend Liz had mentioned that she wanted to eat the couched trees. I do hope that the kindergarteners don’t actually start licking the parochet, but I’m glad that people respond in such a viceral way.
