And We See cross stitch pattern was inspired by a 1922 painting by Russian artist, philosopher, and peace activist Nicholas Roerich. The painting is part 6 of the Sancta Series — 6 paintings symbolising a spiritual journey.
An angel reveals a heavenly vision of Jesus Christ in the last of the Sancta series. The spiritual journey is complete and the face of the humble Saviour is revealed. It’s a beautiful cross stitch on its own — or as the finale to the set.
And We See cross stitch is a large, full coverage project measuring 54.4 x 38.1cm when stitched on 14 count Aida cloth. It’s a challenging piece with a lot of confetti and thread changes. That said, the depth and detail in the apparition of Christ is truly beautiful.
PATTERN KEEPER: due to the size and complexity of this cross stitch, we recommend using Pattern Keeper App to manage the project. Your download pack contains an extra PK chart.
