I saw the "text tiles" show at the Smithsonian National Museum of African Art. It was truly breathtaking!!! The use of metal tiles to create massive, flowing fabrics was so visually pleasing.
I espcially liked the huge black piece as well as smaller wall hanging made of gold, red, and black tiles. A marvelous show!!!!!
