Hampshire County Library Childrens Room Mural created by Sibyl MacKenzie

 

February 12, 2003

 

Each piece of tape has a letter written on it. Sibyl removes the tapes one by one and paints the matching letter on the afghan.

 

Words and notes float from the fiddle to the dragon's book. "Songs and stories make the spirit soar" was composed through a collaboration of Ice Mountain Writers.

 

The fiddler's hands were modeled on Israel Welch, patriarch of Hampshire County musicians .
