Over the holidays, we visited Washington D.C. and the Smithsonian Natural History Museum on the mall. We had just arrived (with 4 kids in tow) when I spotted beautiful colors in a room. I went to look and my mouth fell open. I started snapping pictures because I knew everyone really wanted to see dinosaur bones and the Hope Diamond.
This is a coral reef made of crochet! It is amazing. I have dabbled in crochet, but, WOW!
The colors are so vibrant.
There are beaded ones and every type of yarn you can imagine!
The main reef is huge too- taller than people looking at it.
The Hyperbolic Crochet Coral Reef at the Smithsonian Natural History Museum will be on display until
April 24,2011. It is worth a look and admission is free.http://www.mnh.si.edu/exhibits/hreef/index.html
