Project Description

Theme Giant bulb – Ode to the handicraft in flower bulb cultivation.

Flower bulb cultivation has been very labour-intensive since earlier times with lots of manual work. Despite the mechanization, a lot of hands are still needed today for activities such as sick-seeking, heading of bulbs, planting or peeling bulbs. By embroidering on the giant bulb, Trude Hol translated and honored the handicraft in flower bulb cultivation.
