Two years ago on Good Friday, I posted photos of a magnificent piece of ecclesiastical embroidery, a chasuble featuring the Crucifixion.
The work on this piece is stunning – if you haven’t had a chance to look at it, you should! You’ll find amazing detail in the faces, especially.
The color range used to embroider the faces is amazing – from regular flesh tones, to reds and greens. From far away, these blend together and are not discernable as separate colors.
You can read about the chasuble on the original article. It’s worth looking at – such pieces of ecclesiastical needlework are quite rare.
