We visited the Nantucket Whaling Museum while we were away and one of the exhibits was an embroidery project taken on by local craftspeople to design and illustrate via embroidery, a panel that depicts a significant scene from Herman Melville’s “Moby Dick”.
Unbelievable attention to detail and creativity exhibited here! I’ve inserted some of the best photos I could capture!
They all used the same fabrics and font for the script, but from what I could gather, the design and stitching was up to the craftsperson. Look at the beading that creates the white whale above and the little stars in some scene! Such craftsmanship deserves a round of applause!
