Cross-stitcher sews mini-gallery of famous masterpieces

It takes Elcin Ozcan around a week to finish her creations

A cross-stitch expert has sewn a mini-gallery of some of the world’s most famous masterpieces.

Elcin Ozcan, 44, from Ankara, Turkey, has recreated artwork including Vincent van Gogh’s The Starry Night, Edvard Munch’s The Scream and Leonardo da Vinci’s Mona Lisa.

“I was always hugely fascinated by paintings and painters. I used to watch my grandfather paint for hours,” she told the PA news agency.

“I would visit all art museums on trips abroad, so I already knew quite a lot about the paintings I produced so far.

“As I made these miniatures and posted them online, people started suggesting more paintings and I checked them out [by reading] about the painter and the painting and turned some of them into miniatures too.

“So this has been a learning opportunity as well as a creative journey.

“I always [have a] hugely positive response to them, especially when they are displayed all together. I am really proud of my personal mini-museum.”
