The making of Cecil Skotnes's tapestry

Marguerite Stephens explains in this video the making of a tapestry for the President Hotel in South Africa. 

Apparently friends with the artist, Marguerite explains the history of the piece and how she actually made it. And you can read more about it in the auction catalogue which is selling the tapestry. If you turn the page of the e-catalogue, you can see the work in it entirety. A beautiful piece of textile art from South Africa with a history to match!
