Song of the Angels Cross Stitch Pattern is a replica of the French painting La Vierge aux Anges (1881) by William-Adolphe Bouguereau. It’s a beautiful representation of Mother Mary, baby Jesus and a trio of Angels.
We just love the gentle facial features and the exquisite textures of the fabrics and foreground vegetation.
This is a great big full coverage cross stitch that measures 72.6cm x 106cm (400 x 584 grid size) when stitched on 14-count Aida cloth. The finished piece has incredible detail, but BE WARNED, there is a lot of confetti and similar-toned thread. You’ll be using 147 different DMC colours and complete 233,600 stitches — so it’s not for the faint-hearted.
PLEASE NOTE: We recommend using the Pattern Keeper App to manage this complex project, look for the extra PK chart in your download pack.
