Medieval Middle Eastern Cross Stitch Embroidery, graphed by Rosemary Stecher (Mathilde Eschenbach)
Red on cotton. Appears to be Greek stitch. Lebanon, about 1283.
It was obvious that there was more to the original embroidery than now remains. Possibly this was the lower border of a decorated tunic similar to Had. 90-35 D or to Had. 91-5 B. Here is my attempt at reconstructing the entire pattern based on that assumption.
Momies du Liban: Rapport préliminaire sur la découverte archéologique de ‘Asi-l-Hadat (XIIIe siècle). Groupe D’Études et de Recherches Souterraines du Liban. France: Edifra, 1993. Had. 89-6 A (p. 78-80).
