Beauty in silence

These larger than life tapestries created by embroiderer Yao Ming Chien have to be seen to be believed. They say a picture speaks a thousand words and these works of art really do speak from Yao’s soul. Born deaf, Yao was introduced to embroidery by friend and soon discovered his immense talent.  These hand stitched pieces can take up to four months to complete and require a magnifying glass to achieve the level of intricacy desired!
