Australian Aboriginal meets American Indian closeup

 

 

 

The skull started with a tea-dyed white-on-white fabric that I used waterproof Sharpie markers to draw detail on. The lines are machine stitched with black thread. Note how the carved bone face, abalone flat-backs and mirrors all have beaded bezels that add to the richness of the fabric the robes are made from. I heavily beaded the background and the robes, leaving the skull and the figures un-beaded and pristine.
