One of a series of sculptures in which Horn transforms language into a physical form. Seen from one angle, the text forms an abstract pattern, while from another it emerges as a poetic phrase: the first line of Emily Dickinson’s poem number 1182.

Healing scrolls combine prayers written in Ge'ez, the liturgical language of the Ethiopian Orthodox Church, with astrological and mystical symbols. They are made for individuals suffering from recurring illness and misfortune. Prepared by clerics called dabtara, scrolls are fashioned from parchment and extend the length of the patient. They are worn close to the body, rolled in a small, leather case, or hung near the bedside where the patient can gaze into its healing imagery.

Jonathan Lasker states: In the case of this series of lithographs, which I call “Ball Figures,” round knots of scrawly black lines form ball shapes which are abutted next to one another to make forms which have human, animal, or plant associations. Also, in the backgrounds of these prints there are circles in alternating colors. These circles make patterns which partially fill the page ending in boundaries in the middle of the page forming horizon lines. In spots, groupings of circles are ringed-in by black lines which create subdominant figures in relation to the more pronounced “ball figures.”
