Behold the heavenly Baby Jesus from Michelangelo's Tondo Doni. Housed in the world renowned Uffizi Gallery in Florence, this painting remains one of the greatest treasures of the Italian Renaissance. This exquisite masterpiece is now available for you to recreate in cross-stitch or needlepoint grandeur.
Created during the first blush of youthful genius, this precious painting reflects the spirit of confidence and idealism which filled Michelangelo’s early years. Tenderly rendering this most holy of themes as a chubby, thoroughly huggable infant, Michelangelo portrayed the ideal of childhood as none other. This design will be a lovely centerpiece in a family room.
