Amazing Volcano Handkerchief

The Whitworth Art Gallery in Manchester currently has an excellent Outsider Art with works from the Musgrave Kinley Collection. Outsider Art is one of the coolest things in the world (ask Jarvis Cocker if you don't believe me) and while everything in the exhibition was brilliant but I think I pretty much screamed on seeing this beautiful knitted handkerchief, the subject matter is naturally a volcano.

It's made by Marie-Rose Lortet who specialises in these thread architectures. Having worked in a French couture house and drawing from her mother and grandmothers knitting skills, her other work includes crazy and beautiful structures, clothing and people.
