My brother visited Taiwan recently, and took these photos of a gorgeous embroidery hanging on the wall in Taipei 101, which was the world’s tallest skyscraper from 2004 to 2010. He estimates the embroidery was approximately 8 feet by 8 feet (2.44 meters by 2.44 meters). It shows an incredible amount of work! Look at how soft the shading is in the stitching below:
So, here are photos of a single leaf and tiny flower. I really like the beaded veins, and the long-and-short stitching is incredibly well done.
You can see this flower on the branch at the very bottom. Here is a photo of the bottom half of the work, so you can see the scale of the project:
And one last photo of the top right. I am going to have to visit Taiwan myself someday.
