'Saffron' - 30 x 22cm 	tapestry $ 720.00 by NIKI McDONALD 
​
​Traditional tapestries, commonly relegated to the domestic realm and often used as a device to quieten the presence of women as they sat, seemingly compliant in their task. Niki has given the traditional tapestries a strong sculptural presence, they stand, asking us to look twice and consider the seemingly compliant expressions of the subjects they portray.
