Treasures

Inspired by the Cucuteni culture in a book about ancient goddesses, I found my museum being transformed from an ethnological into a historical one. Here is more about the connection of ancient sculptures and the female organism. The scraps on top are just perfect to create the look of aged parchment and to go with hand writing.
Korak piecing allows the use of very small scraps.
