This fine art counted cross stitch pattern entitled Cupid and Hymen designed from a painting by Alfred Stevens shows, according to Greek Mythology, Hymen who is appearing as a woman representing the god of marriage ceremonies, celebration and song, and Cupid is attending her at her side. Hymen is carrying a single plume of white flowers and is dressed in an elaborate wedding gown in traditional white. Her hair is adorned with a crown of flowers, and her veil billows in the breeze. She and Cupid are standing under a tree with white and ice pink blossoms. Only full cross stitches are used in our patterns. No blended colors are used. We only use an abundance of solid colors as it produces a more realistic effect.
