Another Madonna and Child Statue
"It came upon a midnight clear, that glorious song of old, from angels bending near the Earth, to touch their harps of gold. . . "
My favorite Christmas decorations are the ones that reflect the true spirit of the Christian holiday. It is a beautiful story, from the angels bending near the Earth to the animals we think must have been there by the manger, from the Star of Wonder to the Three Kings following it, from the tiny babe who would become a Saviour to the mother and father who would nurture him.
This Madonna and Child statue was inspired by the Christmas story, my small collection of prints of Madonna and Child, and my best friend from high school who dared to be different and insisted on painting her statue of Mary a beautiful pink instead of the requisite baby blue.
I hope looking at her and the babe brings you a little piece of joy.
