Biblical Berlin Wool Work

I started this embroidery more than a year ago and finally finished it. It will hang in the top hallway of my Victorian dollhouse, well that floor hasn't been built yet, so it will take a while before it actually hangs on a wall. I stitched it with DMC on 48 count silk, the finished size is 5" by 4". It depicts the story of Jacob waiting for Esau and Jacob is not sure if Esau is coming in peace or not after all the years which explains the wary expressions on their faces. The chart is available from Roland Designs.
