Tree of Life Tapestry
2006

Linen, Embroidery Floss, Wool

This is a hand-woven tapestry depicting all
the living creatures in the world. The warp
consists of linen thread. The weft is made
of black wool, and the figures are made
from twined embroidery floss (hand
twisted around each linen thread). The
weaving took me 5 months and roughly 140
hours to complete. It's one of my favorite
pieces, I call it my masterpiece. It
measures approximately 35" x 28".
