More Details

My inspiration for this embroidery kit was the Victorian era's spirit of exploration, where both mystical and scientific interests thrived. Ghost stories, seances, and fortune-telling coexisted with groundbreaking scientific discoveries.

Focusing on the era's fascination with Spiritualism and psychic phenomena, I chose palmistry as the design's underlying theme.

At the same time, the Victorians had a growing interest in science and the natural world, exemplified by Charles Darwin's 'Origin of Species.' This led me to include leaf and flower patterns symbolizing renewal and the cycle of life.

The Victorian fascination with celestial wonders inspired the embroidery's sun, moon, and stars, reflecting their quest for knowledge in both scientific and spiritual realms.

Drawing on the era’s interest in ancient Egypt, I incorporated the Eye of Ra, as a symbol of well-being and protection.
