Intrecciatrici di aglio
Description by the artist
Here are the Intrecciatrici di aglio (Italian for garlic weavers) sitting outside the doors of their houses, in the warm Sicilian sun, working the bulbs. Nubia is known for its red garlic, and reminds me of my grandmother who used to cook the legendary pasta with garlic whose scent could be smelled from afar.
