Part of our Pediment series, these piecework embroideries are inspired by trips to Venice and the architectural elements of the buildings: imaginary pediments and doorways and columns. Silk floss on cotton embroideries salvaged from Miao pleated skirts. Ribbons depict motifs of butterflies and villagers holding hands. Along with cotton and hand-loomed scarves from Huangping County, Guizhou.
