Animals of the Bayeux Tapestry in cross stitch
Warning: Last items in stock!
This cross stitch pattern chart comes from the large pattern chart created by Frédérique Crestin-Billet evoking the Bayeux Tapestry.
On both the bottom and top of the Bayeux Tapestry are found borders, sometimes interrupted by the central scenes. Domestic and fantastic animals, sketches and various symbols, sometimes these borders give an impression of being in coherence with the main scene, sometimes they represent a little tale or a fable which has nothing to do with it.
This project was created by exploring this magnificent iconography. On the first line you will recognise agricultural scenes: ploughing, sowing and harrowing. The second and fourth lines represent hunting scenes while in the fifth line you will recognise the famous fable by Aesop, The Fox and the Crow.
This full-colour pattern chart is printed on a large 60cm x 29cm sheet of paper. It is presented in a Sajou folder.
