'Ex Glande Quercus'

Completed - My latest project is a blend of drolleries selected out of about 50 folios from the Macclesfield Psalter. The Macclesfield Psalter is a lavishly illuminated manuscript from East Anglia, written in Latin and produced around 1330.

*12"x12" ( 30 x 30 cm)
*Egg tempera on gessoed canvas board

When I first saw this piece, I thought that it was an extant piece, and so I put it on my "to stitch list." Would it be possible to getnpermission to stitch this? I do understand if the answer is "no."

Ahhh the Macclesfield Psalter. I have no idea what drugs the scribe was on, BUT I WANT IT!

I love the vivid colors, and the fact that you used period materials.

I'm assuming the labyrinth like design is intentional?  Regardless, very well done detail.
