Porcupine with Accordion
Posted by Nicole Follow the White Bunny
When I noticed this embroidery by Fiona Bearclaw my first thought was: "I wish I had made that!" I mean: what is not to love about an accordion playing Porcupine with a shiny top hat? I can almost hear the melancholic tones of his accordion and I bet he sometimes sings along in a raspy voice. The use of the stitches in different lengths and shades in the quills is sublime and the detail of the pattern on the accordion is just gorgeous. Can you tell that I love this porcupine portrait A LOT?
