Google Earth: Orinoco Delta

Google Earth: Orinoco Delta
39"h by 49"w

The idea for this piece is my own recollection of trips to the
jungle in Venezuela and canoe rides along the Orinoco River;
its waters are clear but the iron ore deposits of the area color
the bottom sand and the surrounding shores.

I made a large piece of felt from scratch using some lovely
Merino wool that I hand-dyed;  other sections were also
hand-dyed using rust shavings.
