hi! I finished this stitching last week, I'm really happy with how it turned out...I'll let the pictures do the talking. the original idea came to me from schnerby, but the pattern/colors/stitching were done by me.





reference - magritte painting

Undecided

Magritte was pointing out that an image of a pipe is not an actual pipe....mostly just to screw with everyone's head.   Those wacky surrealists.   I've also heard linguists take it a step further and point out that even an actual pipe isn't a pipe because "pipe" is just an arbitrary word we've assigned to it...or something to that extent.

Anyway, some one decided to put a Nintendo spin on Magritte's painting by substituting a Mario pipline for the smoking pipe.    And then johloh decided to put a cross stitch spin on that image.   

This concludes surrealism via nintendo via cross stitch 101.

Awesome, as usual, johloh.     

I bet some one could do a wicked Son of Man with Mario in place of the man and a mushroom in place of the apple.
