Textile Original Art


A woman's portrait done in graphite pencil. Dimensions are 9" x 11 1/2".



"Textile Original Art" is a graphite pencil portrait measuring 9" x 11.5". It depicts a woman wearing a traditional African head wrap, recreating the rich texture, folds, and cultural significance of this accessory. Originating from sub-Saharan Africa, these head wraps signal a woman's marital status, age, or wealth and are still integral to modern culture today.

Fascinated with the rich texture, history and beauty of this traditional style, I attempted to encapsulate its essence on paper. I can only hope I did it justice.
