A quick glance at my embroidery will tell you I'm a little obsessed with skeletons. Especially ones that surprise me. I don't know how accurate this drawing is (I take natural history "facts" from the 1800s with a grain of salt), but I looooove the little spikes along this chameleon's skull. I feel like if a chameleon skull does NOT have those little spikes, it definitely should. (Also, if a chameleon could call itself sexier than you, don't you think it would say it with a lisp?)
From Erpétologie Générale ou Histoire Naturelle: Complete Des Reptiles, by Duméril, 1854.
Single strand embroidery on cream cotton with a 5x9 oval hand painted wooden hoop.
**PLEASE NOTE** This is a Made to Order embroidery, so small variations may occur (because: handmade) and (art). I'll need up to two weeks to stitch this for you; as soon as I receive the order, I'll contact you with an anticipated shipping date. Thank you for understanding that handmade art is a slow process with huge rewards.
