Flora and Fauna


The sculptures, made of stone and brass, tell the stories of the richness of the flora and fauna of Palestine documented though embroidery. This was captured in various embroidery motifs from berries, to carnations, to palm trees, to grapevine leaves and even motifs reflecting chicken feet.

The elements were abstracted to be simplified into geometric shapes.

The sculptures were part of the same exhibit of the Bride’s Carpet. The story being that the Bride’s Carpet was buried in the garden, and these were seeds founds in the garden that artists nisreen and nermeen watered and cared for until they bloomed.
