A famous Hat
2013
straw, wood, fabric
114x45x37cm

I was walking in a street when on the roadside i found a hat, made of straw, that was like the one worn by Vincent Van Gogh . Certainly his straw hat is the most famous in the history of art, so i decided to open it and weave it again as two sun flowers, following a composition of one of his paintings.
