Breast Cancer Awareness – part 1

October is Breast Cancer Awareness month. Buildings in the city are bathed with pink light, the pink bow is sold as a fundraiser for research on breast cancer, the taxis have pink taxi signs on top of them, and there are many happenings going on around the country to show support and add awareness. We off course want to take part and make people think and be aware of the dangers that come with breast cancer and remind women to go and get checked on a regular basis.

So we make breasts of all shapes and sizes. And they are going up here and there. Here is what happened this first week in October. There is more coming.

Móðurást, A Mothers Love. Located in Mæðragarðurinn (Mothers Garden) in Reykjavík, close to Kvennaskóli Reykjavíkur. The text on the piece is info about breast cancer, where to go to get your check up, a note about the statue and more. It is beautifully stitched and knitted and we are very proud of it.
