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.
The beautiful continent of Australia, seen through the window of the International Space Station, is a beautiful sight with an entire range of colours. The embroidery uses threads to add vibrancy to the orange/red hues of the desert and creates a vibrant green colour that shapes the coastal regions. Framed by the deep blue seas, the continent depicted in this art piece gives a sense of how beautiful it is in the »land down under«, a completely different ecosystem with a vastly different life. The curve of the Earth and the blackness of space adds to the feeling that Australia truly is at the bottom edge of the planet, peeking into the depth of the Universe below, and symbolizes the curious human spirit of exploration in the best possible way.
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.
