Domestic Armor In ancient Japan, people would donate silk kimonos to the monasteries. These would be cut and sewn to make patch-work garments called ‘kasas’. I liked the idea of a community combining used fabrics into one cloth

    HUH? There's a modern Western clock in the centre, & oven mits, plus a piece of fabric that says "CHERRY" in Roman alphabet, so it's obviously a contemporary work of art mimicking a MING Dynasty CHINESE WOMAN's DRESS. Where the hell do people get "domestic armor in Japan"..?!?! Pls pin in a culturally accurate manner.

    Johannes, before you react, follow the link. This is an artwork by Diane Savona, named "Domestic Armor", pinned from her Flickr account. She describes here her inspiration. Not the item itself.
