Product Description

This embroidered panel was inspired by two beautiful hand-coloured engravings - one depicting the life cycle of the Large Emerald Moth, Geometra papilionaria, and the other showing the Blackberry, Rubus fructicosus - published in the eighteenth century in Amsterdam by Jan Christiaan Sepp.

Worked on cream silk dupion in stumpwork and surface embroidery, this design features a garland of blackberry flowers, with detached petals and buds, surface and embroidered leaves, and raised berries, in various stages of ripeness, worked in French knots and beads.  Nestled within the foliage are the stages of the life cycle of the Large Emerald Moth - beaded eggs, a looper caterpillar, a pupa worked in padded bronze snakeskin, and a moth with raised detached wings.
