The amazing work is a cross stitch representation of an oil painting by John William Waterhouse entitled ‘The Soul of the Rose‘ (1908)

For those unfamiliar, cross-stitch is a form of sewing and a popular form of counted-thread embroidery in which X-shaped stitches in a tiled, raster-like pattern are used to form a picture.

If you want to learn more, there’s a great introduction to cross stitching on deviantART.
