WOLF : Garden

The Printeress

The Printeress resurrects lost patterns. Her garden blooms with centuries-old flowers, still fragrant, still attracting bees, and reverberates with the rhythm of a thousand prints.

The Printeress is mindful of each line, of colour, and of connotation. Cultures meet in her garden. She gathers material memories, and she bequeaths them to the future. She led us into this historical garden, and now shows us around it. 

Poppies announce her presence: Brigitte Singh, the Printeress of the Mughal garden.
