    Silk Art: Their Beauty and Detriment 

    Here are a few pictures of handcrafted silk artwork done by women we visited while in Dali City, Yunnan Province, China. The women there do these intricate pieces to raise money for themselves and their family. Some of them are students who, when they return home for the summer, create these masterpieces and hope they will be sold.

    We were told that the eyesight of many of the girls are severely damages as they work with such fine, thin threads and strain their eyes in attempts to be as precise as possible.

    “Every act of creation is first an act of destruction. ”

    • Pablo Picasso

      Did you see the stands on the main pedestrian shopping street in Seoul selling stewed silkworm cocoons? I didn’t try any…
