Boîtes à trésors by Lyndie Dourthe

Inspired by French 'cabinets of curiosities', they feature images taken from encyclopedia illustrations of the 17th & 18th century. The images are transferred onto coarse cotton canvas which is then filled, embroidered and/or beaded, and hand stitched. (it can be worn as a brooch and comes in its own painted box)
