Decoy and Pond I silk mosaic

While many of Lucienne Day’s silk mosaic wall hangings are purely abstract, she also stretched the medium to create representational works. The six-piece Decoy and Pond series depicts various versions of a ‘decoy’ (a rigid imitation bird used by hunters to attract real ones) coming to life.
