Okay, just so you know, I had to mention this piece to my aunt, who is a massive fan of cross-stitching. Something like this would simply blow her away, and the exact same could be said for myself too.
It's simply hard to believe all this was done with a needle and (I'd assume) a metric pants-load squared of thread. Yet, no-one could argue with the sheer attention to detail; from the beautiful face to the mesmerizing eyes and the immaculate turban and face-scarf she's wearing.
Anyone would think this was like a mosaic with how detailed it looks and probably lose their mind knowing it was done with the hard toil of stitching every single pattern together. Just simply, wow! No arguments from me, this is going into my Honorary Class deviations... It's truly too beautiful to be denied. Amazing work!
