This incredible embroidery allows you to gaze into the eye of a gecko. This gecko is a nocturnal species, that is why it has vertical pupils, while species that are active during the day have round pupils. All geckos have a superb night vision and their eyes are far more sensitive to light than those of a human. They see colours even on nights with no moon. They are hypersensitive to blue and green hues, as these present the majority of their natural surroundings, but don’t recognize red. They even see into the UV range. Embroidered piece brings gecko eye to life in naturally bright and diverse colours and with exquisite details.

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.
