This fine art counted cross stitch pattern entitled In the Venusberg designed from a painting by John Collier shows, according to Roman Mythology, Venus, the goddess of love from her throne taunting Tannhauser in a seductive fashion to lure him to her waiting arms. Being the gallant man he is, Tannhauser is torn between wanting to be a gentleman and wanting to ravish her on the spot. The colors in this cross stitch pattern are very rich with brick red, various shades of gold and forest green, and we are witness to an advanced state of romance. 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.
