Year of Yoni: Week 11

Yoni # 11 is an experiment in 3-D. A little bas-relief. Rust dyed cotton gauze is draped and sewn to the wool felt background. The edges are stem stitched with cotton floss and metallic, mixed fiber threads. The draping of the gauze was spontaneous and necessary to make the gauze square fit the triangular space. At first the gauze's resemblance to labia was unconscious, then I emphasized it with additional stitching as I noticed what was happening.
