Jerusalem Triptych [offsite link]
Three scenes of Jerusalem in blackwork embroidery from England´s Classic Stitches magazine. Although I´ve found no historical references blackwork in the Middle East, European blackwork patterns show a strong influenced from Middle Eastern and Moorish art and architecture. Like many Classic Stitches patterns, viewing this pattern requires a free account, but if you are a needleworker of any sort, it is well worth it.
