Extraordinary early antique white work embroidered Biblical scene of Mary Magdalene anointing the feet of Jesus. A man stands to the right, most likely Simon the Pharisee who invited Jesus to dinner and denounced Mary Magdalene as a sinner. The narration by St. Luke of Jesus' response to Simon the Pharisee is most profound and moving. It clearly inspired the anonymous artist, most likely a nun, to make this remarkable piece. From the estate of a Roman Catholic congregation, done on a pillow case cover, apparently linen, that still has it's mother of pearl buttons on the side and an old, handwritten cloth laundry tag. A museum quality piece of a lost art, a sampler of amazingly complex stitches, fit to be framed. In very good condition with toning and minor imperfections as shown. Shipped fully insured with tracking number.

Measurements: 87.5 cm by 48 cm overall; Embroidered oval 11 1/4" by 9 3/4" approximately.

Item ID: 2483
