Artist Ai Weiwei gets a lot of recognition for his social activism and extravagant art exhibitions, and with his new collection of Ai Weiwei scarves, he is on the map more than ever. Throughout his career, he has been highly opinionated of the Chinese Government in response to its democracy and issues of human rights. This is one of the main reasons why he is so respected amongst artist in North America.

This silk scarf portrays an image of Wei Wei flipping the bird in Tiananman Square. This image proves to be more than just any scarf; Weiwei’s exhibitions and motives are widely promulgated amongst artists and the politically active. It can be displayed as a piece of art in your living room decor, or draped around your neck for captivating banter.
