The Goddess is a wall hanging celebrating the strength of women and traditionally feminine crafts. The quote embroidered around the border is by the German Dada artist Hannah Hoch it reads "Embroidery is very closely related to painting. It is constantly changing with every new style each epoch brings. It is an art and ought to be treated like one., even if thousands upon thousands of sweet feminine hands - displaying scant skill, no taste or colour sense and not a hint of inspiration - mishandle quantities of good materials as foolishly as possible and call the results 'Embroidery'."
