A covid amulet to creatively protect during the coronavirus pandemic.
During the Coronavirus pandemic we have been asked to:
- wash our hands with soap and water often – for at least 20 seconds
- wash our hands as soon as we get home
- cover our mouth and nose with a tissue when we cough or sneeze
- put used tissues in the bin immediately and wash our hands
- not touch our face if our hands are not clean
Washing your hands with soap has become such a fundamental part of the current times, that it inspired me to create this piece of work. Inspired by amulets seen through history that were thought to give protection against evil, danger, or disease. I have made the covid amulet as creative protection for the current times.
