Elizabethan Moth by Zinaida Kazban
'Elizabethan Moth' by Zina Kazban is inspired by a 17th century embroidered panel that depicts flowers and insects in metalwork frames. The moth is stitched with beautiful flat silks using techniques from the Elizabethan period.
It is placed inside a richly embellished Goldwork frame worked with three different types of Goldwork threads and tiny gilt spangles.
The design is a part of an Elizabethan series of designs by Zina Kazban that explore historic embroidery techniques and designs around the theme of stylised flowers and insects in various metalwork frames.
