Judy Chicago – The Creation of the World diptych

Dimensions: 10.5 x 14.85″ framed / 4.75 x 9″ petit point unframed
Year: 1984
Medium: petit point and notes

Creation of the World PP1 (Petit Point 1), 1984 is one of the only extant detailed petit point works from Chicago’s groundbreaking Birth Project series. The image features woman creating all that exists in the world, celebrating her creative capacity through the birth process. Chicago’s Birth Project works are regarded as groundbreaking depictions of birth from a woman’s point of view, rather than the voyeuristic viewpoint of the male gaze upon the female body. This work is comprised of two framed works: the exquisitely rendered petit point image and the petit point study with notes by Judy Chicago.
