Eight vivid hand-loomed nine-inch weavings form the bright side, eight opposing colorless weavings the darkside. Looming Objects includes a dozen Sueñitos (little dreams) — small calaveras representing the migrant children who died this year crossing the US border. This costume comes into three parts; the body, neck and the head. Available for museams, Galleries and events. You can email me if you have any other questions.
