Unto Us a Child is Born

This embroidery depicts child Jesus in the arms of his mother, the Virgin Mary and its design is based on traditional Greek Orthodox religious style.

The Virgin Mary brought to this world the only begotten son of God who came as a true light to this world and taught humankind the love for our neighbour and fellow man without discrimination of colour or nationality and also taught us God’s truth.

Jesus Christ came in a dark and critical period in a world full of evil, violence and vanity when hatred, envy and avarice had been rampant throughout the world.

He suffered all kind of persecution, maltreatment and mankind’s ruthlessness and finally was crucified as an ordinary man.

I will offer this embroidery to the monastic state of Mount Athos in Greece for their dedication to religious values and to Greek Orthodoxy.
