Mary says she's just been looking
at an old black and white photograph
of a family tableux.
And she thought she'd recreate
this family scene.
And she remembers
balancing on her father's hand,
while her sister sat on his upturned feet,
and her mother supported upside down
in a knee and shoulder stand.
She says it's about expressing function,
and honesty and clarity.
(to the tune of 'Tabula Rasa' by Arvo Pärt)
