Ehret die Frauen - Marianne Stokes

Counted Cross Stitch Pattern

A medieval-style tapestry inspired by and illustrating a verse by Schiller praising the feminine virtues. The Gothic lettering at the top says
Ehret die frauen sie flechten und weben
himmlische rosen ins irdische leben

Honor to the women, they braid and weave
heavenly roses into earthly life.
From left to right, the figures represent Protection (Schutz) - a woman in armor; Nurture (Pflege) - a mother giving a bowl of milk to a wild little boy wearing only a skin; Love (Liebe) - a mother nestling a baby in her arms; Wisdom (Wissen) - a woman holding a lantern and a hornbook up to a child in a hooded cloak; and Fidelity (Treue) - a woman in chain mail. The background is rose vines and other flowers on blue with a border of laurel leaves. (1912)
