Marietta Ganapin's kaleidoscopic, seemingly abstract collages started life as reproductions of art works printed in exhibition brochures and catalogues. She made this particular piece especially for the exhibition Extreme Materials at the Memorial Art Gallery in 2006, cutting tiny details from hundreds of postcards featuring the Egyptian inner coffin of Pa-Debehu-Aset in the Gallery collection, 2000.11.2. Even though today's technology would allow her to generate these intricate patterns fairly quickly on a computer, she prefers the painstaking work that allows her to create hand-crafted objects. The end result resembles a vivid Buddhist mandala.
