John Duncan. St Bride - best thing in the National Gallery of Scotland and used to have a print hanging above my midden (bed). Story is that Bride/Bridget was taken by the angels to the nativity to serve as a handmaiden to Mary. There is a better legend which says that when Jesus was born it was actually twins. The first child was a girl and she was spirited away by the angels to begin the Celtic Church, where women were respected unlike in the patriarchal Church of Rome.

Our Holy Mother…the last painting her eyes cast down, this one She is looking at us.

ecstasy? by Manuel Nunez ""My images are of strong women. Beautiful, but not exploited. Women who are sensual and virtuous; wrestling with the underlying conflict of what life is versus what it should be." but unlike many alluring femininity depictions of others, he emphasizes female virtue; here "Draweth Nigh"
