Yao Ming Chien Embroideries

A fascinating collection of giant hand-stitched artworks by Taiwanese embroiderer, Yao Ming Chien. Deaf from birth, Yao was introduced to embroidery by friends. Working from a picture, he painstakingly transfers the image onto a blank canvas before colouring it with hand stitches and tiny beads. One of his most elaborate pieces – Heavenly Kiss – took four dedicated months and a magnifying glass to complete!
