a woman's wisdom is in her spinning

R. Eliezer again. A woman's wisdom is in her spinning... the full context of this was R. Eliezer refused to answer a torah question as it was asked by a woman. Amongst the lace work of this doily I have incorporated spiderwebs, details of various different spinning techniques, and a s&m tied-up woman. (click on picture to see a bigger version)



I used my handwriting as a template for the lettering, and decided to cut out the paper and leave the letters (as opposed to cutting out the letters in the previous papercuts)
