Merman Hoop Art - Embroidered Merman - Mexican Folk Art Inspired - Haitian Folk Art Inspired - Merman Wall Art - Unusual Embroidery

Regular price $150.00 $0.00
This embroidered merman hoop will make a great gift for any mermaid fanatic, folk art fan, or lover of handmade embroidery. He is my first merman! I designed and hand-embroidered him on charcoal muslin. He is wearing a golden crown and playing a painstakingly detailed string instrument with a bow. His coiled and twisted tail is sequined with a technique inspired by Haitian folk art, each sequin is attached with a color-coordinated bead and sewn on separately by hand. The strings on the instrument and the bow are made with metallic embroidery threat. His curly beard is made using a special bullion stitch; his eyes are French knots. There are metallic blue stars above his head, showing that this is a night scene. The wooden embroidery hoop is a 7" circle (not including the frame which adds about 1/4 inch). It will make a compelling, funky, and fun wall hanging or can be propped up on a stand. The back is covered in blue Eco-felt so none of the knots and reverse stitchwork show.
