          The underlying photograph used in this piece was taken in 1979. The image is the site of the location of the Womens' Building during the 1893 Columbian World's Fair in Chicago. This was the first time that women's concerns were adrssed in a world's fair. In 1995 I printed the image, applied lettering, and thus turned it into a photographic work of art. Subsequently I used it as a basis for a 5 x 6 foot painting on canvas, entitled "Female Recognition" as part of the "Thoughts from Under a Rock" series. A further transformation resulted in this silk scarf image.

          Many time periods overlapped, transformed and interlaced. 

          Modeled by Lutece Beavers and Inexistentes Guoda. Guoda is standing in front of my painting "Dreams/Explorations".

Female Recognition

  • These scarves should only be dry cleaned.

  • These are large-scale, 100% pure silk scarves, 140 x 140 cm (55 x 55 in). Given their size, they are more properly called wraps (skraistės in Lithuanian). Most designer scarves, at their largest, are only 90 x 90 cm (35 x 35 in). These are two and a half times that size.

    The mulberry silk used is of the highest quality with twill weaving. The printing techniques are state of the art. All materials used in the production process are environmentally friendly, non-toxic with OEKO-TEX STANDARD 100 certification. STANDARD 100 is the strictest environmental certification in the world. The company that does my printing has 13 years of experience and works only with silk, no other fabrics. This company’s Amazon rating is 4.7 out of 5. These scarves are heavy, durable and warm.
