Ok, so I had this fibers class (uh... almost two years ago), and the big project was a loom project that is inspired by a famous artist.  Most people made a flat tapestry with colors making an image... but PSH to that I say!  I chose H.R. Giger (dude that design the aliens in...uh...the Aliens movies).  Those are rubber tubes woven in on the left side and the metal stick thingies are from turkey cooker deals.  I have no idea what they are called or what they are actually for.... but they looked cool.   Grin   

Anyway, this got entered into the Student Juried Art Exhibition, got excepted, and I got an award for it.  WOO!!  So.... hope you all like it!  (oh.... if you were wondering, I did make the bottom piece too.  It's a felted tool belt, but I'm not really that satisfied with it....)

If you want to see bigger ones for detail, here's link to the page in my blogosphere :

Ok, pictures are being difficult.  Let me know if they aren't working, k?

This is ridiculously awesome and fantastic.  I can completely see the inspiration shining through.  How long did it take to make?
