Artists' Choice-Sacred Blossoms
This lovely Easter stole features Dogwood Blossoms floating down, anchored at the beginning by the Cross and at the end by Easter Lilies.
Legend has it that the Dogwood tree was once very large, like a Great Oak tree, and because its wood was strong and sturdy, it made excellent building material. According to the story, it was the dogwood tree that provided the wood used to build the cross on which Jesus was crucified.
Because of its role in the crucifixion, it is said that God both cursed and blessed the tree. It was cursed to forever be small, so that it would never grow large enough again for its wood to be used as a cross for a crucifixion. At the same time, however, the tree was blessed so that it would produce beautiful flowers each spring, just in time for Easter.
