Sally no Moto

The artwork - Sally McLaren’s modern calligraphy of the character moto (“origin”), done in purple acrylic. Challenge for me was seeing if I could get the wrinkles grabbed by the paint to relax and become totally smooth.

Non-traditional mounting style using gold habutai silk with accents of purple striped silk Shantung (yes, an old necktie...).

 finials - The decorative finials at either end of the bottom roller are glass filled with silver glass glitter.
