Original artwork description:

Throughout the Ottoman Empire, black mourning clothes, described by the Sultan Beyazid II as the “colours of the night” were worn to pay last respects to the deceased and to reflect the suffering of the soul. I added narrow bands of fabric called froggings which were commonly used to fasten kaftans. I chose the noble gold thread the use of which was forbidden in 1716 after a significant increase in its employment in fabrics. Beyazid II ruled as the Sultan of the Ottoman Empire from 1481 to 1512.

Materials used:

Copper and gold thread
