Satirical sewing

Perry draws on the satirical and often graphic humor of historic figures, like William Hogarth and Bruegel.

Seven ages of humans

Perry depicts the 'seven ages of humans' in this work. A child is born at the left of the tapestry and can be seen to advance through life in stages along the work.

Along the red road

The red thread which runs through the work seems to represent some kind of life-blood, feeding into the mouth of a demon-like creature, while a man lies on his deathbed.

Pick a brand

Look closely and you can see there are many words of branded advertizing sewn into the painting. Can you spot 'Ikea'?

Thornback Ray

They occur on shallow, sandy to muddy coasts in the eastern Atlantic, down to 300-450 m depth. The name refers to the nail-like thorns on its back and tail.

They belong to the class Cephalopoda, which also includes squid, octopuses, and nautiluses. Cuttlefish have a unique internal shell, the cuttlebone, which is used for control of buoyancy.

Budgerigars belong to the parrots and occur – sometimes in very large flocks – in dry regions of Australia. They feed mainly on seeds

At first glance raccoon dogs look like raccoons. However, they actually belong to the dog family and their closest relatives are the grey fox and bat-eared fox.
