This embroidery is called “Purple Nevsky Bird” after some drawings I did in the Alexander Nevsky cathedral in Sofia, Bulgaria many years ago. I’ve tried to capture the elaborate wooden gilded carvings that decorated the cathedral interior. It’s purple silk dupion with gold machine stitching, gold lame and purple silk applique and lots of sequins.
