Look Very closely

Have a good look at this photo.
Look closely, and you will notice that this image is a detail of
a textile.
This is the the hand crafted wall art that Frances Caple created in her studio in Ness, on the Isle of Lewis. This work is made from hundreds (or thousands ? !) of pieces of Harris Tweed (yes, the real deal ) and all folded and sewn together to create magnificent, three dimensional wall art.

I had the very good fortune to meet Frances while i was in Lewis. you can see
frances' blog here.
