Hanging Gardens of Babylon are known as the Gardens of Semiramis - the name of the legendary Assyrian queen, ruled 810 BC They are the third of the seven wonders of the world, although today their remains have not detected with certainty. Believed to have been built around the ancient city of Babylon, which was situated on the territory of present-day Iraq. Basic information about the gardens are drawn from documents of Greek historians Strabo and Philo.
This creative needlework can be stitched on mono canvas or evenwave (or even linen fabric)
Counted-thread embroidery is any embroidery in which the fabric threads are counted by the embroiderer before inserting the needle into the fabric. Evenweave fabric is usually used; it produces a symmetrical image as both warp and weft fabric threads are evenly spaced.
The model is stitched on Mono canvas 18 ct, evenwave fabric can also be substituted for stitching (eg. Lugana, Bellana 20 or 25 ct)
