A three section woven wall sculpture commission with numerous color, line, and texture changes. Four layers are woven independently and cut acrylic inserts are placed in the bottom pockets for stability and the top layer is woven longer, so that it can be pushed back against bottom and raised in soft, dimensional folds. There is great variety in the dark/light color changes, with many linear changes in width and repetition.
