Tatos  are an origami folded container used to store and hold semi flat items.  These tatos are pentagon shaped in several different sizes.  They have been randomly placed around the surface and are connected with loosely buttoned down paths.  Two canvases have been oil painted to resemble the fabric designs and inserted into cutouts creating a focal point at the edge of the work.  A clay box oil painted provides an additional container to the tatos.
