This astonishing embroidery allows you to gaze into a chameleon eye. It is very different from our eyes and unique in many ways. Chameleons have one big eyelid shaped like a cone and scaly like their skin, with just enough opening to expose the pupil. You can observe its shape and colours in the embroidery. Their eyes can move independently of each other but while on hunt, they can simultaneously direct eyes forward and switch to binocular vision. The eyes work almost like tiny telephoto camera lenses, with super-fast focus and highly effective zooming. Embroidered piece brings chameleon eye to life in naturally bright and diverse colours and with exquisite detail.

In ancient Greece, they believed that a light and even fire emanates from an eye, seizing the surrounding world with its rays. It opens to the world and grasps more than any words can say. And like a portal to one’s inside, it can reveal a lot, even things that cannot or would not be said with words. It really is the window to the soul and the mirror of our world. Gazes of animals are mesmerizing and at the same time a powerful reminder of who we are in this world and of how co-dependent we all are on the planet we share.

Get your masterpiece today and sink deep into the beauty of living eyes.
