This large tapestry was inspired by the entwined peacocks, which are found throughout the Book of Kells. There are two central panels which each have two peacocks twisted about each other. There is a large border framing these panels, with a further twelve coloured peacocks decorating it.
The design is sewn dramatically in rich colours on a dark background and would present an absorbing project to the needle-worker who likes a challenge.
Sewn using Victorian cross stitch, no need for a frame.
