The image on this bag is a reproduction of an embroydery work. Originally Louise Bourgeois embroidered on a handkerchief the text ‘I have been to hell and back. And let me tell you it was wonderful.’ It expresses her opinion that life is a journey with up and downs, and in the end it was worth it. She put this text on her husband’s handkerchief.
