This handmade embroidery is a creative piece of wall art inspired by a stone statue. To make it I printed an image onto linen, then stitched by hand using contemporary stitching on a quilted background. In this piece of textile art, I have used a variety of embroidery thread in a variety of thicknesses and type that add a rich texture to the stitching. I have used natural colours and threads to portray this ancient King. The threads include cotton, wool and silk.
This is a unique handmade embroidered item as no two pieces are ever quite the same. I have called it ‘Ancient King’.
This textile wall art is on a piece of pure linen, which is unhemmed. You might frame it or mount it as a piece of art. You are buying the hand stitched art only not a frame. It could also be used to make a bag, cushion or a centre piece for an innovative quilt for your own personal use not for commercial use.
As a textile artist, I am interested in portraying emotion, texture and using contemporary stitch as a means of expression. My stitching is entirely spontaneous.
The piece measures A4, 21 x 29 cm (just over 8 x almost 12″), and the printed and stitched part is 13.5 x 25.5cm (just over 5 x 10 inch). So it should fit into an A4 frame. A certificate of authenticity will be provided with this work of art.
