Titus Who? Act Two.

Tamara: Thus, in this strange and sad habiliment, / I will encounter with Andronicus, / And say I am Revenge, sent from below / To join with him and right his heinous wrongs (Titus Andronicus, Act V, Scene ii).

Enough with the dismemberment previously discussed.

My second design for Defarge Does Shakespeare was inspired by Tamora, Queen of the Goths.  Yes, she's murderous, vengeful, and monstrous, but a girl has to look good, too.  Pity her a bit. Titus chopped up her sons and baked them in a pie.  Then he invited her to dinner.  Oh, sorry, the dismemberment theme again. Alas, it's rather unavoidable when discussing Titus Andronicus, forming, as it does, a large part of the image structure of the play.

The piece is knit with two strands of stainless steel-wool yarn which creates a malleable, shape-shifting fabric, with a few beads for a bit of sparkle and shine.

Tamara's Torc of Vengeance

And, if you are like me, and sometimes have such a bad hair day that you need a disguise, then the Tamora Torc of Vengeance is just the ticket.
