This is a beautiful heavy handmade wool needlepoint pillow with roughly 100 stitches per square inch. Licensed by The National Audubon Society. "THE MOST FAMOUS AMERICAN NATURAL HISTORY IMAGE The "Wild Turkey" is widely considered the crowning achievement of Audubon's monumental Birds of America. The turkey is distinct from any European species and so ubiquitous that Benjamin Franklin had proposed it as the American national symbol, preferring it to the eagle. Not only is the symbolism of the Wild Turkey significant, but artistically, it is perhaps Audubon's masterpiece. The first plate to be engraved for Audubon's Birds of America, more care was lavished on its production than any other illustration. Audubon recorded detailed and insightful observations about the species, and expressed a distinct admiration for the creature through his writings".
Needlepoint as it is known today originated in the 17th century, when the fashion for furniture upholstered with embroidered fabrics prompted the development of a more durable material to serve as the embroidery's foundation. Western culture tends to link needlework to women, but it was originally performed by men who spent years mastering their craft.
