An Angel's Face on the Wall...

A bedroom that emanates innocence, a long gone era, simplicity and a time full of tenderness.
The silk carving on the wall is an Apsara, one of those heavenly statues and sculptures carved into the walls of Angkor Wat's temples.
If you would like to know more details about Apsara from the series of the Angkor's Faces and Figures please check this link.

Your use of trapunto is ingenious. I haven't seen anything as unique as Aspara in ages.

Thank you very much! It is actually more than trapunto. Trapunto is normally one layer of stuffing material between 2 quilting lines. What I am doing is actually sculpting sometimes 5 to 6 layers from the reverse side. Especially faces require a lot of different layers.
