Description

LUGUBRIOUS
2,20,320 stitches* | 906 Hours*
*Stitches@ 81 per sq.inch, Time@3 sq.inches per hour.

This tapestry, titled Lugubrious, gets its name from the melancholic virtuosity in the forlorn green eyes of a young Afghan man whose photograph caught Puja’s attention for its endearing expression. A rich floral turban woven with colorful threads of culture and tradition adorns the man’s head. Skilled shading techniques lend this tapestry a unique three-dimensional look which is challenging to achieve in hand-embroidery, without using a stencil or graph. A stunning background adds to the look of this heirloom, which took Puja almost seven months of painstaking effort to complete.

Year of Creation: 2012

Medium: Petit Point/Needle Point Embroidery

Size: 68”x40”

Materials used: 4 ply woolen yarn/double mesh Penelope canvas/hand-embroidery needle

Source of Inspiration: A photograph of an unidentified Afghan national on the internet

Note: No graph or stencil has been used in the creation of this tapestry
