The three dilly bags represent the past, the present and the future. They are delicate but strong, woven from a harsh material into a fragile form. You can see through the bags, what’s inside, what’s outside, and what’s around. You can see the weave alive and living in its form and its shadow. It’s been guided by the hands of our ancestors.
