This fine art counted cross stitch pattern entitled Pandora designed from a painting by Alexandre Cabanel shows Pandora who, according to Greek mythology, is holding a box that she is about to open which will unleash all kinds of evil on mankind. There are similarities in Greek mythology and Christianity in that Pandora was supposedly created from dirt of the earth and she is responsible for unleashing evil due to disobedience in opening the box just as Eve disobeyed God by eating from the Tree of Knowledge in the Garden of Eden. The colors are soft in tone and create a aura of beauty. 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.
