Shopper pad featuring The Progress of a Soul: The Entrance by Phoebe Anna Traquair from the collection of the National Galleries of Scotland.

This richly coloured and detailed embroidery is the first in a series of four called The Progress of a Soul. The human soul is represented by an ideal young man dressed in an animal skin, in harmony with the rich pattern of the luxuriant natural world around him. Here in The Entrance, completed in 1895, he is full of hope and enthusiasm, blissfully ignorant of life's realities.

Phoebe Anna Traquair (1852 – 1936) was born in Dublin, Ireland on 24th May 1852. She was heavily involved with the Arts and Crafts movement in Scotland and became internationally renowed as an illustrator, painter and embroiderer. Her artworks included large-scale murals, embroidery, jewellery and book illuminations.
