Ancient rockcarving and needlefelt
Here is a challenge piece for a Yahoo group I have made today.
I am almost too late but I didn't have access to my studio earlier because of guests we have had the last 3 weeks. My studio is in the basement where also the guests' rooms are.
This piece is based on the photo above of ancient rockcarvings in my neighbourhood.

The size is: 6,5x 4". 16,5 x10cm.
I have made it with the embellisher machine.
The material is sheep-fleece and dark red knitting yarn
The little circle is stitched first and thereafter punched. I don't know the meaning of that.
The spiral is common and the other figure are waves.
Those originals are on the west-coast of Norway. There are many of them.
