Ink pen and colored pencil on acid free paper, 17.8 x 25.3 cm (7 x 10 in.)
I found a pdf of its linear version and printed it to fill the page. Then I put a print out of 18 grid over it and used the underlay to make the pattern. Some adjustments have been made, but it is pretty much that original design:
Excluding hem and hanging casing, it should be 8x11 inches. (20x28 cm).
The canvas is 18 grid aida cloth, the yarns are no. 5 DMC yarns. You will need Gold 742, Red 606, Green 943, Dk Green 991, Blue 796, Brown 301 and Gray 413. The background could either be Ecru or Ecru 712. The outlines are all Black 310. Except for the inside of the top part of the Djed, which is the Gold 742. And there's a shadow line on the body of the Djed which is the darker Green 991, as you can see in the above photo.
One skein of each color might be sufficient, except for perhaps two of the gold and 4 or 5 of the background color. Also, there's a five stripe border, from inside out: Navy, Green 943, Gold, Red, and Brown.
I am inexact on the thread requirements, because I've only gotten this far:
