echo star — variation

A variation on the "echo star" pattern, using a slightly different arrangement and number of rows for the smallest star, and different colors: a midnight blue thread wrap; metallic silver for division and highlights; and embroidery in three shades of silver gray and three shades of violet. Circumference: just under 11.5 inches / 29 cm; diameter: just over 3.5 inches / 9 cm. Completed 15 August 2011 (no. 015).

  1. It's impossible (for me) to comprehend how this is done with such precision; but then all Michelangelo did was cut away any stone that wasn't part of the statue.

    What I can see, with amazement and great pleasure, is how beautifully the pattern and colors work together to create such an eye-pleasing form as a work of art.

    Thank you, Cloudery.
