New work in The Gallery of 61: Tactile Ecstasy.

A fragment of the robe worn by Emperors of the New Chinese era, circa Year 300 – in the calendar of the barbarians, 2400 AD.
Special fibres were woven into the cloth, impregnated with potions shaped to stir intense euphoria in those who received the Emperor’s favour. The Great One would bid the grovelling minion to ‘advance, and know our gratitude’; as the minions crawled onto the robe, which spilled across the floor surrounding the throne, their bare skin absorbed the concoctions of intense delight.
The moment of ecstasy was brief, and invariably fatal. To live even a day longer was to risk shaming the Emperor.

Available for sale in a variety of sizes and finishes at FAA.
