This is a counted cross stitch reproduction I created from my friend and Judaica artist, Adam Rhine's original watercolor painting, through a joint venture we embarked upon. He's now given me exclusive permission to make the pattern available to you in my Etsy shop. Yay!
You can see the original painting and all of his gorgeous artwork at his website: HebrewArt.com.
Difficulty: Recommended for intermediate level stitchers, as it uses some specialty stitches, over-one and over-two and many partial stitches.
Materials: Model was stitched on a 22" x 25" piece of 32 count white Lugana. Not suitable for Aida cloth, use linen or evenweave, only.
DMC threads are used.
About the painting, from Adam's website:
Watercolor and Colored Pencil on Board by Adam Rhine
"...The secret of Hashem (above) is One and His name (the manifestation of His Kingship below) is One."
(The Zohar, Terumah 163-6)
Zohar means "splendor" or "radiance" in Hebrew. It is the title of the central book of Jewish mysticism and the study of Kabbalah. Written in Aramaic, it is a commentary on The Five Books of Moses, the Torah. "The Zohar" stresses that every human act has its effect upon the universal course; the spiritual forces above depend for their activity on the influences from below, that is, human thought, speech and action.
