          The underlying photograph used in this piece was taken in 1980. In search of a source of peace, I traveled to Pipestone, Minnesota and photographed the gorge located there.

          The red stone from this location was used to manufacture the legendary peace pipes used across North America. These pipes were indeed used during peace talks. Given current events, the need for peace is particularly important.

         In 1995 I printed the image, applied lettering, and thus turned it into a photographic work of art. Subsequently, in 2018 I used it as a basis for a print on paper "Persian Sybil" as part of my "Sybils" series. A further transformation resulted in this silk scarf image.

          Many time periods, many attempts stiving for inner peace, were overlapped, transformed and interlaced.

  •           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 with dry, non-steam.
