The article offers information on the works of Katarína Zavarská in Czechoslovakia. Zavarská was born in Bratislava in 1948 and was known internationally for her tapestries, textiles miniature, mixed media work, and installations. It notes that she had more that 20 solo exhibitions, both in home and abroad, and took part in numerous group shows and international symposia. Her designs include "My Alphabet," a seemingly innocuous series of enlarged and alphabetized photographs of the artist's mouth, "Mystery of Vision," a set of 30 reflective images of faces, each in its own box and "Kafka," a five-panel work in tapestry created in 1992 for an exhibition in the famed writer's native city of Prague.
