Description: The words “VARIETY IS THE SPICE OF LIFE” have been formed into a rectangular design, and worked in black tapestry wool. The spaces behind the letters are filled with many different colours (none of which are repeated) to symbolise the diversity of humanity, and the spectrum of experiences we each encounter in our daily lives.
