This design was inspired by an early eighteenth century English canvaswork picture executed in tent and counted satin stitches. It illustrates a stylized "Tree of Life": a brilliant example of needle-painting with the meticulous shading of embroidery threads on linen, illuminating various exotic creatures and plants, inspired by the new discoveries of mariners and men of science as excursions to the west teased and opened the minds of embroiderers more than three centuries ago.

Words courtesy of The Scarlett Letter.

Stitch Count: 340 x 320
Stitches: Tent and Counted Satin
Linen: Model worked on 40 count linen in silk using one strand over two linen threads.
