Gnomes vs. Snowmen!

Anna Hrachovec launched Mochimochi Land in 2007  "as a place where knitted toys and people can live together in a spirit of tolerance."  
 "Gnomes vs. Snowmen" is her newest exhibition on display until November 18th at Gallery Hanahou in NYC. 
The exhibition is a miniature epic battle scene inspired by the 11th century Bayeux Tapestry depicting the Norman conquest of England. It consists of more than 40 knitted panels and is quite the crafty triumph!
Snowballs fuel this battle between gnomes and snowmen for control over carrot supplies, herds of cuddly bunnies, candy canes, and robots.   Please follow this link to see the battle in it's entirety.  It does not disappoint!
