This animal counted cross stitch pattern entitled Mandarin Pair of Ducks shows male and female Mandarin ducks proudly displaying the beautiful colors of their feathers. They are usually found in eastern countries like Japan, Korea and China and Eastern Russia. In Asian culture, they are often seen as a symbol of love and fidelity, and figurines of these birds are usually given as wedding gifts. You could stitch this for a wedding gift for someone you know and explain the symbolism! No blended colors are used in our patterns. We only use an abundance of solid colors as it produces a more realistic effect. Only full cross stitches are used in our designs.
