The Abandoned Needlepoint

In the course of traveling the world, one may come across abandoned artwork. My daughter took this picture of one such lonely masterpiece while touring the ancient city of Safed, Israel. It is a framed floral piece, forgotten in a desolate corner of a dusty stairwell.

In a forgotten corner of a mystical city

Whose were the skilled hands that stitched this piece? Which simple home did this art grace while hanging on the wall, and for how many years did it bring its viewers joy? It will surely forever remain a mystery, taking its place among the many secrets of this mystical city.
