The baptism / Lise Melhorn-Boe

Melhorn-Boe, Lise. The baptism. 1998. 3 pages. (Tabletop: 18 x 18 x 27″). Archives and Special Collections, University of Calgary.

From the artist’s website: The three dresses (one original, two reproduced) my sisters and I wore for our (group) baptism hang behind a stuffed fabric Black Forest cherry cake on a small table. On a dainty tablecloth is embroidered the story of why all three of us were baptised together, in a private afternoon service. The cake is central to the story.
