While visiting Krueger national Park I saw an abundance of butterflies--I took photos of these butterflies and then with computer I printed images of the butterflies--I "distorted" this particular image, sewed on the surface of the image--the fabric on which I printed the images is silk. The fabric used for the rest of the jacket is silk which was purchased in the market near Victoria Falls. I interlaced the fabric and created this long jacket.
