This Ai Weiwei 'Sunflower Seeds' silk scarf's design is based on an installation piece done by Chinese activist artist Ai Weiwei that used ten million unique hand made porcelain 'sunflower seeds.' Each seed was individually crafted A video was made to commemorate the exhibition at the Tate Modern.
Ai Weiwei's work is internationally known and he has been detained and imprisoned by China's secret police for what many believe is his activism. LACMA's permanent collection includes one sculpture by Ai.
