There are at least two ranges of rainbow mountains, one in China and one in Peru. I had never heard of the real rainbow mountains when I began work, it was just a whimsical title. This wholecloth art piece is made from an Indonesian batik, stitched, couched, embroidered, and embellished. Upon a little research I was struck by the similarity of my colors to the geological formations. The final dancing shape of the piece came about all by itself - clearly I have pretty much abandoned straight edges in favor of movement.
