My Boy Builds Coffins Track 10

Designed inspired by Track #10 from Florence + the Machine’s album “Lungs.”

 

My original design had three coffins in it, for the boy, girl, and for you, but it seemed a bit busy, so just one coffin got stitched, the boy’s coffin, with hammer and nails. The hammer’s head is done in silver metallic floss.

 

Lyrics:

My boy builds coffins with hammers and nails

He doesn't build ships, he has no use for sails

He doesn't make tables, dresses or chairs

He can't carve a whistle cause he just doesn't care

 

This piece is from a series of fourteen hand embroidered pieces designed and stitched by Mark Bieraugel based on the album “Lungs” by Florence + the Machine.
