DescriptionThis unevenly shaped weaving resembles an ancient mosaic floor that has been partially destroyed. The piece shows a figure with large eyes, curled hair, and a straight nose. Surrounding the man is geometric patterning. It has mainly earth tones. The fiber is looped loosely to create an open weave.
