Tapestry Installation - St. Thomas More, Oceanside CA

This 20 x 9.5 foot tapestry for the soon to be opened St. Thomas More Catholic church in Oceanside, CA was installed on December 4, 2015. The tapestry depicts images of Thomas More derived from drawings of the saint and his family by Hans Holbein the Younger. The tapestry also references More's best known literary work Utopia and one of his most famous quotes "Earth has no sorrow that heaven cannot heal." The building was designed by Los Angeles architect, Renzo Zecchetto.
