June 2014 18

 

I was trying to fill in the gaps on my June napkin with relevant pictures. This seemed to fit the bill, with it being exactly a hundred years since  Gavrilo Princip assassinated Franz Ferdinand. It is a flyer, pulled from the bin, of an exhibition about The Great War at The National Portrait Gallery. I have sewn every face from the leaflet onto the napkin.

You can see the whole piece here.
