"Nerites" a lace scarf
Nerites was a sea faring god. It is said that following a dispute with the god Helios (whom Nerites had dared challenge to a chariot race) he was transformed into a shell-fish. This is a scarf that honors the divinity in the human, the gods and demi-gods. Nerites was a minor Sea-God, and is part of my series dedicated to humanity, mysticism and the Ancient Greek Mythology.
This scarf while it is a lace piece, it possesses some interesting textured stitches. I aim to capture the riding of the waves and the dancing of the dolphins and Tritones, while these two beings ride their chariot across the 7 Seas. I hope you enjoy the journey into this Ocean lace world. Materials:
