'The tapestry shows many possible pilgrimage destinations, religious and secular. In the central disc are many different names for the afterlife laid out in the shape of a plan of the British Museum. The figure are from my personal iconography. The woman in black represents the contemporary world, the bear is raw emotion, the boy, innocent reason and the woman in folk costume stands for tradition.'
