march 2016 / I started this portrait in 2015. It took me about 9 month to complete.   heavy machine embroidery and hand embroidery were applied on unbleached heavy cotton. Bits of wool, and old silk scarf and handdyed silk was used to create the scarf around her face. Raw sheep wool was used to fill the space behind her face to make it come forward. The portrait is 3D and mounted on cinnamon barkcloth.
