Another consideration for the centre Icon of the Altar

By Peter Paul Rubens
It is a cross stitch but it only uses whole stitches and it is
11 by 19 on 14 count AIDA cloth
With a 2 inch border the finished would be 13 by 21 inches.
Not too bad when the dimensions need to fit abt 15 X 20.5 inches. So I would need to adjust the borders, easily done.


By Rembrandt

It measures 11 by 17 on 14 count AIDA
and requires about a 2 inch border for final measurements of 13 X 19inches

Then I found this one
By Raphael
On  21 count  AIDA it would measure14 w x 23 h Inches.  
I'd have to start at the top and work down, hopefully I would not need to cut of John and Mary's knees.

Of the two I prefer the first. One of my favorite crucifixion images is the one on the far right at this link.

You are right, but it would be difficult to make and embroidery pattern out of those. And I agree with you, I am leaning towards the first one too.

That and Bear would prefer a crucifixion scene in which perpective is one of the Cross being directly in fron of us

Scripture to keep in mind

Six things there are, which the Lord hateth, and the seventh his soul detesteth: [17] Haughty eyes, a lying tongue, hands that shed innocent blood, [18] A heart that deviseth wicked plots, feet that are swift to run into mischief, [19]A deceitful witness that uttereth lies, and him that soweth discord among brethren. [20] My son, keep the commandments of thy father, and forsake not the law of thy mother. ***Cf:Douay-Rheims Proverbs 6: 16-20
