Description
Within their realistically modeled "garments" of gilt silver the Virgin and Child are shown as the infant Jesus offers His benedictions with right hand raised. His mother leans her head tenderly towards Him, while looking out towards the viewer in pride at presenting her Son to the world. Their darkened faces are beautifully detailed depicting a variety of emotions-- compassion, tenderness and love-- all directed outwards, and yet also contained within themselves. With the skillful use of textural contrasts in metal and the smooth rich surface of paint the artist has created a lovely icon of devotion. - (PF.5182)
