The figure is delicately created on fine silk through the application of consecutive layers of melted wax, painted on by Sam Hauser. The fabric is dyed between each layer of wax. As the image is submerged in the dye bath, the wax cracks leaving a signature of intricate webs of color throughout. Prague Bather 2 emotes confidence through a classic reclined pose.
