This fine art counted cross stitch pattern entitled Apollo and Daphne designed from a painting by John William Waterhouse shows that according to Greek mythology, Apollo is in pursuit of Daphne for romantic reasons and has hopelessly fallen in love with her due to being shot with an arrow by Eros, the god of love which is causing his intense love for Daphne.  Daphne, on the other hand, who was also shot by an arrow turns indifferent to Apollo's love, and has sought to thwart him by turning herself into a tree.  Here we have the couple shown in vibrant rich colors colors.  Daphne is a beautiful woman no man can resist with long flowing dark hair and skin of alabaster being chased by Apollo who is strident in his moves with muscles flexing in his legs on a quest to capture the one he loves. The transformation of Daphne into a tree is noted starting at her feet as the tendrils of branches begin to work their way upwards.  This is truly a fascinating piece and well worth the stitch.  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.
