<< True, or we just haven't found anything like that embroidered. We know they
did woodcuts that were extremely graphic. I'm a firm believer that just
because we haven't found it doesn't necessarily mean they didn't think about
it. I have enlarged the drawing and plan to embroider it. It really doesn't
show anything so I guess depending on your point of view it is X-rated or
PG-13. I'm sure it will tick someone off, but I plan to have it framed and
hanging in my home or as a banner. >>
There's actually some in the Bayeux Tapestry - I forget where, but on the
bottom somewhere there's two figures merrily going at it. Pretty
graphically, too, as I recall. Of course, it's narrative embroidery, so more
like a manuscript, but it's definately there.
