The queen and the bear
This piece was visually inspired by the May Queen in Midsommar, capturing the queen and the bear from the final scenes of the film.
Embroidery was created by hand, directly onto the postcard, using French cotton embroidery thread and hand-dyed silk thread. This piece required over 50 hours of hand-stitching to capture the layered textures of both figures.
The vintage photograph measures about 4"x6" and will arrive in a complimentary, custom-built natural alder wood frame to hold the free-flowing threads in place. (Due to unfortunate delays, the frame is not shown in the photos, and the piece will be shipped out by early June). The threads have been slightly stiffened to maintain its structure. The piece will be signed and dated on the back in pencil.
Please note: As this is a vintage postcard, there is some wear and damage on the edges and corners of the postcard, as depicted in the photographs. The upper right corner is torn.
