3. This piece requires you to have a background of Christianity. In this painting it consists of Mary holding baby Jesus, but if you didn't have any context to this painting you could just see a lady holding a child.
“One can’t help but wonder their thoughts as they looked into each other’s eyes, or about their interactions as Jesus grew from baby to toddler, toddler to little boy and from boy to man. What did Mary teach Jesus and what did He teach her? No doubt their relationship was one of devotion and unity as they obediently fulfilled the Father’s will throughout their lives.” Art by Jean Keaton
Liturgical Year : Feast of the Nativity of Mary : "From all eternity, the Blessed Trinity predestines Mary to be the Mother of the Son. God adorns her with all graces for this purpose. She is the most beautiful fully human soul ever created, second only to the Incarnation of the Word. God gives each person the necessary strength for a specific mission in the world." -In Conversation with God
