 Sleeping People Embroidered Onto Handmade Pillows by Maryam Ashkanian

Iranian artist Maryam Ashkanian embroiders
individuals deep in sleep onto the surface of her handmade pillows,
matching the size of her subjects to the area one would physically
occupy if they took a nap on her work. The stitched sleepers lay
sprawled in different configurations on the white background, some with
their arms outstretched, whiles others hold them tucked into their
bodies. These sculptures are a way to access the wide subject matter of
dreams, a place where Ashkanian feels we can observe ourselves in one of
the purest forms. You can see more of her sculptures on her Instagram and Twitter.

This is not a knitting related post but this is awesome
