This fine art counted cross stitch pattern entitled Dante's Dream designed from a painting by Dante Gabriel Rossetti shows Dante dressed in black coming to view the love of his life, Beatrice, who is on her deathbed. An angel in red is seen kissing the dying Beatrice goodbye and carrying an apple blossom which is a sign of unrequited love. The color of green is used here as a sign of hope. Tis a sad occasion portrayed, but the passion force from the artist really comes out in full force. 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.
