Antinous, a Greek youth adored by Roman emperor Hadrian. Antinous was deified by the emperor after his premature death before turning twenty. His life and death remain filled with mystery, drama and passion. Just like this woven photograph. He became a symbol of male homosexuality in the Western culture with his work-ship becoming one of the most enduring and popular deified human cults in the Roman Empire.

* Images are for reference only. Detail images are not associated with each woven photograph. Each one is a unique piece of art. No two are alike.
Woven photographs are made from two identical museum quality archival Giclee prints. The prints are hand cut in very thin strips and hand weaved back together adding complexity, texture, drama and relief to an already striking image. Each piece, from cutting to weaving is completely hand made. Nuances in shades, weaving, and alignment make each woven photograph a one of a kind.
