Embroidered Mugshots

 

I think we’re all pretty sick of the whole celebrity fascination (right?) but I do like the idea of the embroidery of a photograph.

“Hand embroidery is a traditional art form passed from generation to generation in many cultures. Elaborately embroidered clothing, religious objects, and household items have been a mark of wealth and status in many cultures. Although serene landscapes and monuments are predominant in this art form, this designer has taken a modern approach by focusing on popular culture images. More specifically celebrity mugshots, which include Lindsay Lohan, Paris Hilton, Nicole Ritchie and OJ Simpson. 10 x 15cm.”
