LAURIE BETH ZUCKERMAN "FORGET-ME-NOT" HOME ALTAR INSTALLATION
A jumble of Madonna and Marys populate my "Forget-Me-Not" altar which sits next to my office desk. I was inspired by the Santo Nino de Atocha altars that I have seen in Chimayo, New Mexico. It has a bright feeling in its coloration, but it holds a deeply sorrowful feeling at its core. After my mother, Blanche Kleid Zuckerman passed away, I was worried she would forget me. This home altar is my plea to her to please not forget me, to be my Guardian Angel always. It is also my statement back to her that I will not forget her either. That I will always be the keeper of her flame as long as I am alive to do so. These altars I have been sharing of my mother, whose 90th birthday would have been this week on December 4, hopefully give you an intimate glimpse into the world of my personal family altars.
Please join my dear friend, Rebecca Brooks at her blog for the 12 days of Mary sharing by artists around the world: Recuerda Mi Corazon. I have linked this post to Rebecca's site.
