Simply incredible! Golden cape made out of gossamer.
A handmade scarf – 4 metres long – is the costliest and best of its kind worldwide, the Victoria and Albert Museum in London explains. It will be shown in London end of January 2012.
Over 5 years about 80 workers collected the gossamer of about more than one Million spiders, named “Golden Orb”, in Madagaskar. The female spiders were collected in the morning and brung back outdoors in the evening.
Inspired by drawings (illustrations of the art of weaving of long forgotten times from the 19th century) the Englishman Simon Peers and American Nicholas Godley created this awesome pieces.
