Force, Museo de Arte Sacra

Embroidery in Force
On Monday as we were walking back down to the car from the top of Force, there was a sign for the Museo dell' Arte Sacra, Museum of Sacred Art. The above photo is about half of one piece, it's behind glass so I couldn't avoid all the reflections.

Here are some close ups of the big piece above.

These priests garments are in another case.
and here is a close up of a bit of it; I believe it's gold thread. There was nothing at all about it in English and I haven't had time to try and translate the Italian.

Here is a close up of the cutwork that you can see in the above photo.

Here is the placard in the Italian if you want to translate it!
