18" x 24" Poster. High quality reproduction of "Self Portrait: A Personal History of Fashion" by Salley Mavor. The original fabric relief sculpture incorporates miniature dolls, which represent a year in the artist's life. The dolls spiral out from the center, passing through time, from birth to age 52. Each 1" to 3" figure is dressed in an outfit she would have worn that year. Many women who were born in the 50's see themselves in the doll wearing patched bell bottoms, peasant blouse and woven shoulder bag, not to mention the alpaca poncho in the next year's doll. The piece is stitched entirely by hand, including the endless french knot pattern in the border.
The original fabric relief sculpture is on semi-permanent display at the Woods Hole Public Library in Woods Hole, Massachusetts.
Posters are autographed by the artist. (silver pen on black)
