Dance of the Seven Veils cross stitch was inspired by a vintage costume design concept (1917) by Russian artist Alexandra Exter. The boldly delineated geometric shapes and strong colours make it perfect for cross stitch.
Now you can recreate this vintage, but totally à la mode costume design in the bold DMC palette (jade, red copper, autumn gold, royal blue, pistachio). You’ll love stitching the performer’s haughty complexions and textured gowns.
We think this would look great at the entrance of a contemporary office, salon, or inner-city terrace — anywhere you need something chic and sophisticated.
Alexandra Exter (born Aleksandra Ekster) was an avante-garde painter, costume and set designer who worked between Paris, Rome and Moscow. She was a contemporary of Picasso and Marcel Duchamp. We love Exter’s paintings of the theatre and her costume concepts, look for them in cross stitch here in the store.
