This mind-blowing embroidery is a part of “Window with a View” series. It is a series of the most spectacular sights that mankind has enjoyed so far, taken from the International Space Station. It can be purchased and admired as a single piece of 30 x 30 cm (11.8 x 11.8 in), or you can get more pieces from the series for your home, office or business premises.
Home of Renaissance culture, trade and exploration, Venice is a fantastic sight from the window of the International Space Station. We have taken the liberty of bringing it closer, in order to show within embroidery all the intricate details of rooftops, alleys and water canals, palaces, squares, gardens and ports of this old Italian city, unique in its concept of building and a testament to human ingenuity which made the city possible, and to the beautiful style of the Renaissance buildings that make Venice into an art piece on its own, made possible by the location which made the city into a cultural and trading hub of the Adriatic.
The first stop when one goes into space is the International Space Station, located about 400 kilometres above Earth. It may lack the comfort, but the view is breath-taking – those who had the chance to see it first-hand have been describing it as the most beautiful thing they had ever seen, a spiritual and even life-changing experience, allowing them to see Earth, mankind and themselves in a whole new perspective. Through the window of ISS, such sites were admired by mere 240 people. Now, with this embroidery, everyone can enjoy it and be awed by its beauty.
Get this embroidery masterpiece and enjoy a different perspective of the world.
