Description
Textile hanging of cuprominium rayon fabric, with a large format digital print in shades of green and black. The image features a male figure, with his back facing the viewer. He is semi-clad in boots, socks, a hair vest and computer generated garment parts. The background consists of a grid of squares in two sizes, featuring a series of details of the body. The lower section of the hanging features a 'wheel of fashion', depicting a range of male hairstyles. All edges are finished with overlocking stitch in black tread, and a narrow reinforced channel situated along the top edge houses the display mechanism.
