Gvantsa Jishkariani lives and works in Tbilisi, Georgia. In her tapestry pieces, Gvantsa transforms serene landscapes into poignant reflections on societal shortcomings. By embroidering expressions of heartbreak onto Soviet-era tapestries and embellishing them, she symbolizes a reclaiming of power and a process of healing from oppressive cultural norms.

This piece, titled "Dress of a Thousand Oceans," embodies the interconnectedness and complexities of the world. The dress is composed of elements representing various aspects of nature and humanity, such as oceans, birds, trees, and witches. By juxtaposing these elements in a single garment, Gvantsa emphasizes how everything in the world is interrelated and how each action or phenomenon has ripple effects throughout the interconnected web of existence.
