Bayeux animals cross stitch kit
Warning: Last items in stock!
This cross stitch complete kit 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 third and fifth lines represent hunting scenes while in the sixth line you will recognise the famous fable by Aesop, The Fox and the Crow.
