This fine art counted cross stitch pattern entitled Perseus and the Graiae depicts a scene where Perseus from Green mythology is consulting the help of the Graiae sisters who hold the key to the location of the Gorgon where Medusa resides. The mission performed by Perseus is to locate the cave of Gorgon and to tell the whereabouts of the three objects required to kill Medusa, the hideous woman with serpentine hair. This work of art by Sir Edward is one of his finest works as it almost presents itself as three dimensional as a combination of both painting and sculpture rolled up into one magnificent artwork. This would make a fine conversational piece. 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.
