This is Pele' by Petra Voegtle, using her own technique of "silk carving." "The surface of the fiber was transformed completely into a relief. The upper layer of this piece was made from one single piece of silk - nothing was sewn on top to add depth. Additionally paints and pigments were used in a manner to give the visual impression of flowing lava in all its glowing colours and the viewer is supposed to feel the heat. But it is 'only' a piece of soft sculptured silk."
