Tapestry - Textile - Silk Applique On Linen
Nontraditional piece based on a photograph of three Mongolians conversing. Hand-stitched with the same traditional techniques used for the sacred images, this piece features contrasting fabrics and the application of real mala beads. The finished work is stretched on a rigid wooden frame rather than rolling up like a thangka.
I've applied traditional Tibetan techniques of patchwork, applique, and embroidery to new imagery in this piece. When I look at this image, I want to join the conversation these three delightful characters are engaged in... though the small woman in the middle looks like she's heard the bald man's story one too many times!
