The presented machine embroidery design Beautiful Cross is the closest to the image of “the tree of life”. The graceful embroidery in the internal field of the cross gives this similarity with it. This thin vegetable drawing inside creates the effect of blinking of tiny petals. It seems that they tremble at the slightest whiff of a breeze. Besides, the color offered for the design should be noted. Since ancient times gold always represented a cross. “Gold doesn’t change and doesn’t deceive. It is a truth symbol” , said St. Nikolay (Serbian).
Where is the best to place the cross embroidery? First of all, this pattern will be suitable for decoration of objects for ritual procedures. In Christianity they are called Sacraments. The basic one is the Epiphany. The sacrament of baptism of the future Christian is held in special linen attires. They are called “kryzhma”. The godmother of the baby prepares it in advance. She should sew white clothes for the Epiphany and decorate with embroidery.
Or, she may buy already finished product. In this case, the embroidery on kryzhma will be made for her by a manufacturer. The statistics shows that every year more and more people are converted to Christianity. It means, that those who are engaged in preparation of special ritual objects, can plan business expansion. Things for a communion, burial of the Christian, religious holidays belong to ritual objects. And, of course, they can be decorated with the presented embroidery.
