    I've had this religious needlework or needlepoint or embroidery art of a cross for a while now. Can anyone transcribe the signature? It might be Russian or Latin ??
    Thanks!

      An Easter post. A bit late, LOL !!!

      The Shrouded Cross. It is to do with the resurrection of Christ. The colour of the cloth is significant.

      Stages of the Cross is a symbolic depiction of the Easter season. There are typically three (3) crosses with the center cross representing the cross that our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ hung on. The first picture with the cross draped in purple, represents Lenten Season. The purple cloth remains on the cross from Ash Wednesday to Maundy Thursday. The second picture with the cross draped in black, represents Good Friday. The black cloth remains on the cross from Good Friday, through Saturday (Day of Silence). The third picture with the cross draped in white represents Resurrection Sunday Morning (Easter Sunday). The white cloth remains on the cross from Easter Sunday through Ascension Day when the cross is rendered barren until next lenten season.
