Cleopatra Quilled

Roman History has always been my favourite reading. I love all movies of the Old Testament. Cleopatra is one of those movies that I would love to watch over and over and never get bored of. It was a challenge to my self to quill this beautiful queen who was so famous not only in her time but in our time too. It wasn't easy quilling. So much paper wasted. I quilled so many shapes and discard them till I was really satisfied with it. I did the face thrice before I settled for this pattern. The quilling pieces for the bird too had to be done several times. It wasn't like quilling flowers or animals. It had to be so close to the real painting if I had to call it Cleopatra. I think I did justice to the picture. May be she will like it if she could see it from where ever she is. Hope you would like it too ☺
