Innocence Cross Stitch Pattern is a replica of the beautiful 1893 painting L’Innocence by William-Adolphe Bouguereau. The original design is an inspirational Christian scene of Mary with her baby Jesus.

The finished piece has incredible detail, but BE WARNED, there is a lot of confetti and similar-toned thread.
