The Shakers' work was an important part of their calling, and represented their culture interwoven with their religious beliefs while living in a physical world. Perhaps the best known of all Shaker drawings is the Tree of Life, an 1854 work of Hannah Cohoon, a Shaker sister from Hancock Village, Pittsfield, Massachusetts. This colorful image, its branches laden with red and green spheres, came to Sister Hannah in a dream. To her, it represented the abundant fruits of spiritual labor. Today, it is widely used to symbolize the simple integrity of the Shaker heritage. The original Tree of Life artwork is in the Andrews Collection at Hancock Shaker Village in Pittsfield, Massachusetts.
Finished Size: 7" x 5½" on 18 ct Charles Craft fabric
