This "Community Arts" tapestry tells how people from Scotland have travelled and settled around the world. The word "Diaspora" can be a word that is little understood, but I find the best way to explain it as "The Scots Abroad", a term that was used when the tapestry was exhibited in Paisley. The 307 panels begin to tell the story from 30 countries. Also, the Tapestry shows how "The Scots Abroad" influenced thier homeland. This is very profound to the Scottish culture.
