The Entire Star Wars Saga Cross-Stitched By Hand



You might’ve seen all the movies, read all the books, and even played all the video games, but now behold “The Coruscant Tapestry,” a 30-foot long tapestry cross-stitched by artist Aled Lewis, which depicts the entire Star Wars Saga.

A hand-stitched cotton thread on 30 foot of continuous length of 7 stitch per inch Klostern fabric. Stiffened with a thin batting and hemmed with a custom-made printed pixel star farbric on rear. This cross-stitch tapestry depicts the Star Wars saga (so far) from Episode 1 through Episode 6. Quotes from each movie are written in Aurebesh on the surrounding border. Chanelling the Bayeux Tapestry.

The work is currently on display in Lewis’ solo exhibition at Gallery 1988 called Such Pixels. It’s also for sale if you’ve got the galactic credit!
