ADDITIONAL INFO:
This purse is stitched over an old worn out canvas coin purse from Jan Haag's mother, otherwise to be discarded. The pattern of the purse is made up of various layas (speeds) of Tintal, the most common form of Indian Classical music rhythm. The stitches trace an astonishing range of beats of the Indian drum.
