This piece is based on the painting by the famous modern Chinese painter Qi Baishi (1864-1957 AD). Though with a common subject, the painting creates a special sense of pleasure. Thanks to the embroiderer’s brilliant combination of various techniques such as long and short stitches (tao zhen, 套针), thickening stitches (shi zhen, 施针), random stitches (luan zhen, 乱针), full-and-broken-line stitches (xushi zhen, 虚实针), along with the thoughtful selection of colored silk threads, the embroidery piece depicts maple leaves with eye-catching colors and cicadas with agility.
