In case you were wondering, Gertrud is 31 X 31 cm and Max is 33 X 23 cm. I was curious to see the hanging devices, but taking an artwork off the wall in the middle of an art opening is usually verboten, so I didn't.
Artist statement: "The primitive Dutch plank loom has for many years been my favorite tool for expressing myself. Lately my small tapestries have been shaped, depicting imaginary faces of freaks and creatures that are more fantasy than portraiture. They are inspired by folk tales and literature. The weaving process takes on a life of its own and often the faces are woven upside down to allow for a more intuitive approach."
