Daphne Daphne


Eleanor Burholt

This piece was inspired by the ancient Greek myth of Daphne. Apollo chases the naiad Daphne, and at the moment he is about to touch her, she transforms into a bark-covered laurel tree. The fabric of this ensemble was created by quilting and then hand-shredding recycled textile waste.
