tent stitch tree of life from Huber

Tree of Life Courting Scene
English canvaswork c.1700
(It's all about love)

This graphic needlework picture features a central tree flanked by an elegantly dressed couple acutely aware of one another. The inclusion of various animals, birds, and butterflies in a lushly flowered setting complete with sun and billowing clouds represents Nature.

The splendor of Nature is often depicted in needlework as a backdrop in which budding human relationships can flourish.

Wool and silk on linen; 29 3/4 x 17 framed.
