Name in English
|For Anita Apinis-Herman, her mother's heroic
attempts to retain knowledge of Latvian weaving have borne fruit in the series Dzimtene
which match traditional Latvian symbols with Australian flora. As a concession to a
dun-coloured landscape, Apinis-Herman has woven her designs in secondary rather than the
traditional primary colours.
Dzimtene, six weavings including this double weave flannel
flower (actinotus helianthi)
