Description
The Virgin Mary, dressed in a brilliant red cloak, cradles the infant Jesus in her arms. She delicately touches His sleeve with her right hand, while her child gently places his small fingers on the fine fabric of the garment around her neck. Their clothing is vivid and alive with color, especially with the contrasting green of Jesus' tunic and the rich blue of the lining of the Virgin's cloak. Her features are beautifully soft and touched with an ethereal quality, which further heightens the contemplative expression in her eyes. Four saints surround them, two on either side, as witnesses to a beautiful scene that has inspired the world for centuries. - (PF.5301)
