"Wall hanging made from cotton, silk, and hemp sourced in the USA, Cambodia, Vietnam, Morocco and Burma. Features scraps from a Moroccan tailor's floor, silk kimono lining, silk shirts from Paris that my dad once wore, Guatemalan embroidery and a tunic worn by the Pa-O women of Lake Inle, Burma. Inspired by the imagined life of a miner, my great grandfather's holy vision of white light in the mines of Southern Illinois, and the quartz lines moving through rocks I once saw in Northern CA near the Yuba river. Bamboo rod for hanging included."
