DescriptionThis wearable artwork consists of a black vestment worn under two sculpted silver panels, one front and one back, which are connected to each other by silver links that hang over the shoulder. The silver panels are formed from multiple forged slender plates that are joined to one another, and hang from the shoulders with flow and movement.
