monoprint: HOLDING UP THE SKY


This is a big job for any woman but the Egyptian goddess named 'Nut' is trying to protect the flooding vineyards aided by some big umbrellas. In this print I tried to capture the hand-painted papyrus qualitiy of the illustrations contained in the Book of the Dead, while at the same time commenting on the disastrous floods of present time.
