ORIGINAL ARTWORK / INSPIRATION
DRAGONFLY – Atelier Munana Gatera
Paper cut- 350x150cm
Munana’s emblematic Rwandan women becoming alveolar matrixes. The lace effect is created by chiseling the paper with a scalpel.
The grooves are reminiscent of an elongated body with four transparent bluish wings with serrated veins. The dragonfly symbolises transformation. It is the representation of impermanence, which is what our artist stands for. The Rwandan become intergalactic goddesses wandering between worlds...
HAND MADE WITH CARE
Hand tufted carpet, created with a curly pile
sheared. This type of carpet is produced by craftsmen who draw the design.The craftsmen tuft the carpet using a “tufting gun”. Carpets made in this way can be finished in “cut”, “loop” or “cut and loop” to achieve a textured effect.
The original paintings and artworks are thus transcribed with their unique colours and patterns in relief by experienced and passionate craftsmen.
