Card Najat – Rebelled Spirits

SKU: 9634

£3.65

The spirits of the uprooted trees are rebelling. They nourish, give hope, beauty and light to the living one which stands majestically and refuses to be uprooted. Its roots anchored profoundly in the land of Palestine to secure its survival for future generations. Other spirits rebel by finding their way in the landscape in the form of Palestinian cross-stitch motifs: the Palm Trees; Olive Leaves; Vine Fields; Mountains of Jerusalem and the Stars of Hebron and Bethlehem, all of which shed peace, harmony and serenity around. Technique: Hand painting on porcelain using enamel for raised work on the olive leaves. Cross stitch in pen work, brush and special colours were used as well. Several firings at high temperature were required.
