Yesterday I was talking about the Christmas ornaments for the big swap...while working on them I was looking for some inspiration...how about these little animals for your tree? They are Lyndie Dourthe's new creations, Elepoica. A great shop in Amsterdam called EggMercantile is selling them in their birck and mortar store but also online!
Eggmercantile is fortunate to sell a wide collection from this very inspiring artist Lyndie Dourthe. Lyndie herself is inspired by French 'cabinets of curiosities'. The 'Boîtes à trésors' collection feature images taken from encyclopedia illustrations of the 17th & 18th century. The images are transferred onto coarse cotton canvas which is then filled, embroidered and/or beaded, and hand stitched. Here you will find Lyndie Dourthe's own website, but it is in French...
