Beautiful lace

20120213-110233.jpg

Here is a very nice example of Cantu lace. It was donated to the organization I work for by the lacemaker, who spent one year in designing and working the pattern, which is a representation of our coat of arms.

Unfortunately, this iPhone photo doesn’t do it justice. (First try at posting from my phone. Please let me know if anything is wonky.)

  1. Wow, that is really beautiful – a true work of art. Its a nice photo for an iPhone effort – sharp enough to show good detail and nice overall color. What are the dimensions of the piece?

  2. Marie – Yes, it is religious. The bottom of the shield in the middle is the Jerusalem Cross. Above that is the symbol of the Franciscans: the pierced hand of Jesus crossed with the pierced hand of St. Francis (who had the stigmata, according to Catholic teaching) and a cross in between. The dove represents the Holy Spirit, and the crown represents God the Father. The words mean “On Mount Zion in Jerusalem” and is a reference to verses from the Psalms.

    kb – It is, isn’t it? I love having it on the wall of my office.

    Judy – Thanks for the nice words about the photo. I might just be getting the hang of it! The actual piece is about 20 cms tall.
