Twelve large embroidered panels fashioned from eight million stitches which tell the story of 'the Creation' have gone on display at Salisbury Cathedral.<br />
<br />
The panels, which measure up to 8ft by 11ft, are made from silk, hand-dyed materials, gold leaf and metallic leathers.<br />
<br />
They have been created by Devon-based textile artist Jacqui Parkinson who has dedicated three years to the solo project.<br />
<br />
The panels are inspired by the poetic verses of Genesis, the first book in the Bible, and include depictions of the Garden of Eden.
