Bleaching technique and dye on serpent knot appliqued textile, made from Japanese cotton and linen.
Black tray frame.
Muse: Audrey Tautou
The woven serpent applique reflects Old Norse knot designs, and illustrates the dangerous side to the goddess of sex, fertility, war and wealth. Made with red linen, Japanese textiles and natural linen, the motif of an interlocking snake is both a symbol of danger and union.
Ready to hang.
