The blood of the martyrs
Madonna de Santissimo by Diana Mendoza at Sorelle Gallery
"Immaculate Heart of Mary" by C D Smith. Characteristics of iconography in contemporary style. Shapes in halo allude to celestial bodies, sacred vessels, botanical subjects; background elements from Our Lady of Guadalupe. Stars on shoulders and forehead represent relationship with the Holy Trinity. Hands offer us graces and gesture toward source of her illumination - a Eucharistic host, the Body of Christ, which is the focal point of her existence.
Luke 2: 10 And the angel said to them, "Fear not, for behold, I bring you good news of great joy that will be for all the people. 11 For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Savior, who is Christ the Lord. 12 And this will be a sign for you: you will find a baby wrapped in swaddling cloths and lying in a manger." MERRY CHRISTMAS TO ALL!!!!Angélico, Angel en adoración
