This Harvest Ghoul is very well dressed but has an eerie glow that makes me reluctant to trust the mead he's pouring out. Beware offerings from strangers.
This illustration is from a 1565 book published by the Parisian bookseller Richard Breton called "The Drolatic Dreams of Pentagruel." It's chock full of strange creatures like this, just begging to be shown to a modern audience (which is where me and my needle come in).
Single strand embroidery on cream cotton in a hand-painted, six-inch 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.**
