Temari Balls

A huge collection of embroidered temari spheres by an 88 year old grandmother

Flickr user NanaAkua photographed this amazing collection of geometric spheres created by her 88-year-old grandmother who began to master the art in her 60s. She has since created hundreds of them, nearly 500 of which you can see right here. Temari balls
