Teresa Wentzler says of this absolutely exquisite design for the counted cross stitch enthusiast: This piece is an unusual and eye-catching sampler featuring recognizable motifs from ancient Egyptian art and history. The motifs include: the scarab, falcons and vulture, the sun disk, various gods, the lily and papyrus, the eyes of Ra, heiroglyphs, and typical profile portraits of a pharoah and a queen, in regal headdress. The predominant colors of the design echo what is found in exisiting artifacts and pyramid paintings: gold, turquoise, lapis, carnelian, and onyx." Worked on 28 count evenweave fabric with beaded elements and metallic threads, this piece is suggested for the stitcher with some previous experience in expert level work. Loaded with fractional stitches, one over stitching and metallic threads, this piece has simple specialty stitches of couching, lazy daisy, diamond eyelet, diagonal satin stitch, woven (plaited) cross stitch, Montenegrin cross stitch which add some variety to the stitching process.
