New Or Nue

I have just finished this piece of Or Nue, a gift for a school principle.

A close up to show how the metal threads changes direction which provides the piece with so much movement.

I then discovered that my computer can zoom into the picture and it show the stitches and the texture of the metal thread, which when you are using it looks smooth! amazing.
