1995-1996 TUKRA IN TINTAL, TABLA COVERS
Tukra means "little piece." The musical Tukra that inspired this set of tabla covers was one of the first Indian Classical music tabla compositions Haag learned to play, this signaling a new direction in her "musical" needlepoints. For the first time Haag stitched the bols in Sanskrit, giving visual representation to sounds and their sequences.
