Tree of Life Tapestry by Animal Fayre
This outstanding richly coloured wallhanging from the Animal Fayre Collection, is sewn in cross stitch using wool and metallic threads. Semi-precious gem beads are sewn on the finished work to give the tapestry a new dimension.
Several golds and reds combine with rich greens and blues to fill the design with colour. This is edged with a dark border to frame the tapestry. The design depicts a gold tree with spiralling branches. Every branch represents a different type of tree, each symbolising a tree of life with its attendant fruits. There are orange-tip butterflies, dragonflies and bees dancing through the design. A peacock sits in the top branches, a salmon leaps from the swirling waves to pick a hazelnut and the pheonix rises from the flames.
This design is one for the needle worker who likes a challenge, but is not too complicated for the less experienced to tackle.
