Vintage nun work, a religious embroidered collage with the figure of Saint Paul, cut from an old color print,  surrounded by hand embroidered shoots of flowers and leaves.

Saint Paul is recognizable by his attributes, the sword and the book.

It´s a naive nun´s work from 1930s, made with devotional love using recycled materials: on a piece of cardboard was glued a chromolithography of St. Paul around which were embroidered flowers and leaves. Then this card was placed on a passepartout made from scraps of floral paper glued on an old 1930s calendar sheet on which someone had taken notes.

No frame.
