Orangutan in Monochrome cross stitch was inspired by the 1914 woodcut ‘Orang oetan’ by Dutch painter and graphic artist Samuel Jessurun de Mesquita.
It’s a simple design of a gorgeous orangutan in Art Nouveau style. We just love those sleepy eyes, relaxed happy face, and super long arms. And the artist’s unique insignia is reproduced in the top left corner.
Orangutan in Monochrome cross stitch was designed specifically for 14 count black Aida cloth. The project measures 44.3 x 33.2cm and you’ll be completing 14,907 stitches. The project in NOT full coverage.
