Stunning Swan

Here is the rug that won the Pictorial award, and it's easy to see why - even in a picture. It is hooked by B. Nonnemitz, who is apparently a second-generation hooker - daughter of another amazing hooker.

What you may not be able to see is the incredible sculpture in the top of the wings.
Or the detail in the background. The texture that she has incorporated into the water is amazing. Such movement, it's nearly as hypnotic as real water is to me.
Be sure to click on the image and look at it more closely, so you can fully appreciate the work here.

It's funny, because I wouldn't have considered this a pictorial at first, but I guess in my head a pictorial is more in the landscape category. But when you think about it, this definitely is "pictorial", just as the word describes.

A couple more to show tomorrow. And make sure you go see what Jenn has been posting on her blog, if you haven't already been doing so.
