This cross stitch pays homage to the classic Cylon Centurions of the vintage (admittedly somewhat camp) science fiction series--one of the seminal works of the genre. The Centurion's helmet is one of the most recognizable icons in all of science fiction, depicted here in beautiful 8 bit!
This piece is sized to make a great little desk gift for a coworker you suspect of being a simulant, or an infiltrator from a hostile alien culture. It fits nicely into a 2"x3" frame, easily available cheaply from any craft store or (better yet) from a thrift store.
So say we all!
