Stunning architectural quilts by Nigerian artist El Anatsui

Standing in front of a textile by Nigerian artist El Anatsui, you may find yourself in awe. Thousands of metal scraps, including bottle caps, milk tins, and aluminum wrappings from the tops of liquor bottles, are pieced together to create his stunning architectural quilts. Finding a discarded bag of bottle caps inspired his creations, which represent a commentary on Nigerian history and culture.
