SILK PAINTING :  Front middle panels on left and right sides.  The silk painting was originally done independently, then blue coordinates were chosen from materials stock recently to create this garment.

Inspirations from Hopi Pottery of birds and seeds, from which I amalgamated an abstracted design. The blue bird-like image was from a stylised maize shooting from seed.  Hopi designs of birds and seeds had similarities of stylisation.
