kimono frames were constructed of twisted red enameled wire. The
basic frames were built upon large sheets of cardboard and then
transferred to a wooden stand for the fabric sewing. A stiff cotton
netting was hand stitched to the wire spanning the areas that later
would be covered in silk fabric. The kimonos split into halves for
easier transport. This transport consideration was necessary as
the sculptures were to be driven to a fire retardant specialist
to be sprayed prior to completion and prior to installation.
