delicate lace embroidery

wondered past a tiny sri lankan exhibition at the arts house, which sits on the old parliament house building, showcasing various traditional sri lankan arts and crafts. here a woman is intricately producing a piece of lace, with some taking up to 3 months to produce.

 

notice the tens of pins with each tied to a string at the end which gets twisted and turned skillfully by the lady's hand.
