Thomaston, Maine:: Cynthia Motian McGuirl,, 2013.. One-of-a-Kind. 7 x 6" closed tunnel book. Materials: copper, paper, and waxed linen thread. Etchings. Laid in cloth-covered clamshell box with title label inset on front cover. Signed and dated by the artist. Cynthia Motian McGuirl: "Grandma Stories is a combination of etchings. The first etching is Nemrud Dagi which is about how my Grandmother had to take on the identity of her dead sister to immigrate. At Malatya was a disturbing dream about the murder of score of Armenians while they were harvesting wheat. Yeksa Calls is my depiction of Yeksabet calling me in a dream. Maryam is a portrait of my Grandmother's oldest sister as a young woman. Rebekah is a portrait of my Grandmother titled with her given birth name. The tunnel book is a fitting presentation because looking through the stories leads to her, and getting to know her better on the way.
