This fine art counted cross stitch pattern entitled Dante's Vision about Rachel and Leah designed from a painting by Dante Gabriel Rossetti shows two women used as symbolism for active and contemplative/stagnant behavior, in addition to vying for the artist's affections. Rachel is dressed in purple, the color the artist uses for inactivity and death while Leah is being active by working with tendrils of leaves. She is wearing the color green which signifies life and verve, and is wearing a red rose in her hair to capture the artist's eye. 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.
