Gigi R Designs tells us: "This is a reproduction of an undated antique sampler. Although the sampler was purchased from the UK, it probably has a Dutch origin. The sampler contains many typical Dutch motifs, but their combination and arrangement is quite unusual. A peculiar feature of this sampler is a female figure holding a burning lamp. It strongly resembles one of the five wise virgins from The Parable of Wise and Foolish Virgins. But normally there would be 10 (five wise and five foolish) or 5 wise virgins stitched."
The stitch count is 263w x 276h.
The model was stitched on 40 count hand dyed Beige linen from Weeks Dye Works using a combination of hand dyed cotton floss.
