Flight remains one of man's greatest dreams, something we have only mastered through leaps of technology and by strapping ourselves into machines that allow us to soar... Something that Nature achieved seemingly effortlessly in countless animal species from vastly different families. Our embroidered series »Wings« takes us on a journey across the animal kingdom to explore their own »technology« that allows them to fly. The embroidered art pieces can be purchased as a single piece of 40 x 40 cm (15,7 x 15,7 in), but if you wish to furnish your office, home or business with several, the series is available as a full set of 8 embroidered pieces.
Wings are the instrument of flight, but sometimes they are used for completely different purposes... The moth is a skilled pilot, navigating through the night darkness, but in the day the moth rests... and its wings are used as a cloak, using a soft plush texture, subdued colours and detailed patterns to mimic wood and bark on which it rests through the day. Where butterflies proudly stick their wings outward, the moth folds them around itself, as if to keep warmer, becoming all but invisible.
Spark your own desire to take flight with this beautiful series of embroidered art.
