This fine art counted cross stitch pattern entitled The Annunciation designed from a painting by Rogier van der Weyden shows the Virgin Mary being visited by an angel to tell her of the the Christ child she is to bear, the son of God. Mary appears to have been reading her Bible when she was suddenly startled by the angel's visit who has sought to calm Mary by assuring her that God has found favor in her, and that this is what God wants her to do. This scene also depicts a coming of age and grace when there is a transition in the Bible from the Old Testament to the New where Jesus Christ is coming in the form of a baby to take away the sins of the world and give us the opportunity to live with thee in heaven. 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.
