This is a screenprint of a spider web by Vija Clemins that looks so beyond realistic that it almost gives me shivers. each intricate detail of the web has been carefully presented through this piece, we dot look into spider webs as we are freaked out by the creature that create them but Vija has captured the raw beauty of a spiders web that gives you a sense of appreciation for the artist depicting the web but also the little spider who put the web into place.
