I am back with more photos of the Vietnamese embroidery that is now decorating my apartment! I thought I’d start with some close-ups of the tree, since I found the method interesting. The leaves are all in straight stitches – maybe even running stitch. There are several colors and it is beautifully shaded. The trunk is mostly worked in combined green and brown, with a few yellow areas where limbs were trimmed.
I’m not sure who these guys are but I love their beards. Wikipedia tells me that the groom and his party are supposed to bring gifts. I’m not sure if that’s what the boxes are about.
And this box is huge! Take a look at this horse – he’s even shaded.
I think these are more gifts!
These two have individual fancy saddles.
