Tapestries – finished

The Khayameya (traditional Egyptian tapestries) are complete. Here is a shot of them displayed at the current exhibition of Khayameya at the Alexandria Atelier  in Egypt.

Thanks to Ihab Atwan, I am collaborating with the Khayameya craftspeople in Old Cairo to realise my paintings as tapestries. These are all 100% hand made, no machines.
