Mater Amabilis means Loving Mother or Lovable Mother, and we see that illustrated here as Mary, along with the Guardian Angel, attends to the sleeping child. Presumably it's Jesus, because of the halo, but it could be any child because when they are that little, sleeping in a rocker, they are all gifts from Heaven. This is a perfect picture for a bedroom.

Mater Amabilis is one of the titles of Mary in the Litany of Loreto, and this is one of the exquisite embroideries illustrating that litany. They were based on the drawings of Ezio Anichini, a devout Italian artist. He released them in 1912, and they show the Art Noveau style of that era. They are graceful and beautiful, and as embroideries, they are regarded as masterpieces of beauty, design, and execution.

Original worked mostly in long and short stitch on a rich cream satin background in shades of beige, fawn, and brown silks, as well as white, warmed and enriched with gold threads.

We spent a lot of time restoring this image, removing the flaws from the photograph and lightening it a bit to bring out the richness and contrast of the colors and the precision of the needlework.

If you love this series as we do, you can own 8, 9, 10, or all 11 of them at big savings. Go to this link to find out how: https://www.etsy.com/listing/1166393551/loreto-embroideries-lot-of-8-9-10-or-11

** IMPORTANT ** THE IMAGE IS SMALLER THAN THE PAPER! There is a white border of about 0.5" inch for 5x7", 1.3" for 8.5x11", or 1.6" for 11x14" pictures. All Approx! Fine art printers do this because the images are almost never the same rectangular ratio of the standard paper sizes. It also gives the prints a finished look, and lets them look good in a frame without a matt.

- Acid-free paper
- Archival pigments, rated to last for generations.
- Cardboard backer
- Above story of the art
- Enclosed in a tight-fitting, crystal clear bag.

Thanks for your interest!

Thanks!
