Mary is an intercessor for us. She implores her Son, Jesus, on our behalf. All of us on Earth have sinned and fallen short of the glory. In this stunning embroidery based on the art of Ezio Anichini, Mary is interceding for sinners. They are in different stages of their sin, but they are all hurt by it and in need of her help.

This title is from the Litany of Loreto, which expresses our relationship to Mary. One of our favorite artists, Ezio Anichini, made illustrations in 1912 of all the titles of the Litany in use at that time. His work is Art Nouveau, or Stile Liberty as it was called in Italian, one of our favorite styles. He makes his Litany precise yet romantic and emotionally engaging.

A seamstress, unknown to history, took 12 (with rumors of a 13th) of Anichini's pictures and made them into exquisite needlework. They are now held by the Royal School of Needlework in London, regarded as masterpieces of beauty, design, and execution.

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:

** 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!
