Fallen Heads Scarf
By Wangechi Mutu
This is a beautiful scarf, printed with Wangechi Mutu's Fallen Heads, 2010 artwork on 100% silk.
Acclaimed artist Wangechi Mutu (b. 1972 Nairobi, Kenya) works across painting, collage, drawing, sculpture, and film, developing hybrid, fantastical forms that fuse mythical and folkloric narratives with layered sociohistorical references. Mutu's practice consistently challenges the ways in which cultures and histories have traditionally been classified, and proffers new models for a radically changed future informed by feminism, Afrofuturism, and interspecies symbiosis.
