Mohrenkopf (Banner)
Embroidery on Satin
64' X 48"

This is a large-scale banner made out of satin. I have reproduced as an embroidered drawing, an image from the Cologne carnival. The choice of satin is based on the materials in the carnival outfit from the Cologne Carnival. “Mohrenkoof” translates into “Moors Head” and refers to a popular (though archaic) name for a German confection.
