This approximately 41" square silk scarf looks great on your head, loosely hung over your shoulders, wrapped inside the neckline of a silk blouse, tied as a halter over a tank top, and more.
Along with most DBD scarves and wraps in this collection, the image's asymmetry is also your secret weapon--depending on how you fold it (the trick lies in which point of the triangle you make your apex), you might unfold a variety of monochromatic looks from dark to light and from simple in pattern to more complex.
THE STORY Named Antares for the warrior star, because one look this image has is of a beautiful, ancient helmet , the subject is actually an original 1930's, WPA-era turbine on display at the Bonneville Dam in the Columbia River Gorge in western Oregon.
The "orbs" on the image are raindrops that were falling as she photographed. Deborah has taught a form of cosmology, and the play of structure and movement, solid metals and weather, shine and shadow reminded her of the great play of star evolution in our skies.
In Antares as in other images from this collection, small streaks and circular orbs of light that dot the blades are actually raindrops caught in mid-flight by the camera's lens.
Antares has a faint abstract, first edition DBD logo in the lower right hand corner, as subtly visible in the first, second, and final (art) images.
SunTzu is kindly holding up this piece for you backlit underneath a bright skylight and against a white curtain so you can see it at maximum transparency. Sarah models it as a shawl from different angles against an exterior wall on a cloudy day in mid afternoon where you can see some of the range and potential of translucent silk crêpe de chine against the body.
MATERIAL OPTIONS 12 MM CREPE DE CHINE: translucent with beautiful drape, depth, and subtle texture and shine.
COLOR ANDESITE MONOCHROME: a subtle, sparkly palette of blacks, grays, and whites.
CRAFTSMANSHIP All DBD silk scarves and wraps are individually artisan printed on a photographic printer and hand-rolled and hemmed in the USA. Creatively conceived and executed in the mists of Western Oregon and produced in the California wildfire zone, they bear not only beauty and versatility but also a message of regeneration. Each one is unique, and slight individual variations in color and printing are normal.
