Swirls and curls created by little pin pricks of light floating across a solid field, flit and flutter, combining and intertwining to give the impression of uncontrollable chaos. Only by prolonged and careful observation will order eventually emerge and the secrets of the stars unveil themselves.

Zodiac le Plume is a crescent shaped shawl with organic patterning that draws inspiration directly from the sinuous lines and shapes which characterize the Art Nouveau movement.
