Thumb Amputation

Regular price $50.00 $0.00
Thumbing through old medical texts is definitely dangerous. Stumbling upon this illustration has forever changed how I experience de-boning a chicken. Slip that knife behind the bone and swwwwwick, you're done *shiver*. I'm not yet a vegetarian, but I can totally understand why people are.

I love having art like this on my shelves and walls, just to see how others react.

This is an embroidered reproduction of an illustration from "A Treatise on Amputations of the Extremities and Their Complications," published in 1885.

Single strand embroidery on cream cotton in a 6 inch 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.**
