Hand Embroidered Yantras

three hand embroidered yantras
I finally finished stitching together this five foot banner. Framed within it are three hand embroidered designs I made while living in Seattle. The banner is hung by spring loaded poles that are wedged between two wall posts in our house. It adds much needed color to the interior of our home.

The embroidered designs were created using an intentional idea and a mantra was repeated with every stitch. They are embellished with different types of stones. I had fun making these during my "embroidery phase", perhaps I will make more in the future but for now photography has taken hold of my creative juices.
