Mother And Child Hand Embroidery
Tapestry - Textile - Hand Embroidery
This painting, called "Mother and Child" is considered a Byzantine Icon. Probably an early Cretan work from the 13th or 14th century, this image later became very popular among Catholics in Rome by 1499.This hand embroidery honors the famous icon. Through a collaborated effort, this piece of work was hand embroidered by my sister To-Lan and several ophanes who were raised in a Catholic Church in Saigon, Vietnam. All proceeds go to selected Autism charities in VN and the US.
