Touch-Finish

Please do not touch

Please do not touch, a drawing in two sections by Ruth Hingston
Please do not touch by Ruth Hingston is a work of poignancy and mystery. I wanted to rescue and examine this apparently lost garment and to reconstruct a story around it. I was left wondering who had owned and abandoned a garment so lovingly crafted.
