Persian Miniature Embroidery

I was reviewing my prior blogs and websites and found this item I did a number of years ago. It was inspired by a Persian miniature painting, and was executed in silk split-stitch on a linen background. I ended up giving it to Lady Aelfguire Willowmoon, one of my friends who was active with the Great Dark Horde household in the SCA.

Here is the original miniature it was based on, from 1371. The original is in the collection at the Topkapi Palace Library in Istanbul.
