The Baleful Head - Edward Burne-Jones

Perseus in armor showing the head of Medusa to Andromeda. Perseus rescued Andromeda from a sea monster to which she was being sacrificed and was promised her hand in marriage in return. However, Andromeda had previously been promised to someone else, who came with an army to claim her. Perseus turned the whole army to stone by showing them the head of Medusa the Gorgon, whom he had slain by looking only at her reflection. Here he shows the head to Andromeda by holding it up to be reflected in an elaborate marble well in an apple orchard. (Pre-Raphaelite, 1886-7)

On this page, the image is shown at a fixed size (stitches are 2 pixels x 2 pixels). This allows you to compare the relative size of different patterns (other pages scale the images by varying amounts so that they fit the page layout).

You can click "Show regular print pages" or "Show large print pages" to show how the pattern is divided into pages for the two print sizes. The page outlines are red, and the page numbers in the chart are also shown in red. (Charts always start on page 3 of the pattern booklet.) The smaller black grid shows the 10 x 10 blocks of stitches within the pattern. These are always the same. The only difference between the large print and regular print patterns is how many stitches fit on a page. Click "No grid" to hide the grid and page lines.

You can change the colors of the page numbers, grid, and page boundaries to colors that show up better against the pattern picture. The page numbers have a shadow which allows them to show up even if the foreground color matches the pattern in a particular area. Choose background color "none" to remove the grid and shadows.

If you would like to print the image without the Scarlet Quince logo, tabs, etc., choose the grid display you want, then click "Printable version". You may need to specify that the background image is to be printed. Here's how to turn background printing on.
