Raccoon in Yellow & Gold
I couldn’t call myself a Torontonian if I didn’t have a raccoon in my collection. It was surprisingly difficult to find a historic illustration of a raccoon that looked right, until I found this delightful (if slightly guilty-looking) specimen in the 1918 book ‘Wild Animals of North America: Intimate Studies of Big and Little Creatures of the Mammal Kingdom’.
The raccoon is 4.75 inches wide, stitched by hand on 5x7 inch 100% cotton watercolour paper, which means that it will pop right into any commercial frame in that size, and be ready to hang on your wall.
Materials: Korean and Japanese paper, glass beads, and cotton floss on cotton paper.
