The neuronal pattern used in this scarf was taken from “Cassiopeia”, a 3.5 x 7-meter sized painting on canvas. It was commissioned by the University of Chicago and first shown as part of my "Cosmic Consciousness" exhibit at Rockefeller Memorial Chapel.
It was subsequently shown at the Oriental Institute during an international Hittite conference. It is currently in the permanent collection of the Oriental Institute. It was the first piece of contemporary art to be added to their collection of antiquities.
This piece deals with the origins of Indo-European language and culture, in addition to stellar and cosmic origins. More information about this piece and the “Cosmic Consciousness” installation can be found in the art gallery section of my website, www.Plioplys.com or by clicking HERE.
Also, there is a YouTube video of my sermon during mass at Rockefeller, in which I discuss the significance of this installation. A link can be found on my website or by clicking HERE.
Modeled by Lutece Beavers and Ieva Heninga.
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 14 years of experience working with silk. These scarves are heavy, durable and warm.
These scarves should only be dry cleaned. Ironing is best done dry, non-steam.
