This 100% silk twill scarf features Judy Chicago's imagery from her Creation tapestry, which was the first textile piece that Chicago started when she began working on birth and creation imagery. It is a visual narrative that challenges Michelangelo’s concept that creation takes place by a male god reaching out his finger and creating “man.” Represented instead is a female deity who gives birth to woman who gives source to all life. Original tapestry design by Judy Chicago; weaving by Audrey Cowan. Measures 24 x 72 in.
