Product Description

 

by Pierre Mignard, 1640   (Abundance, Reconciliation)

In the background, the dark landscape, partially covered by a curtain in the foreground, is in silence and harmony. The Child Jesus looks at us with gentleness from underneath the thin veil of His mother; the veil symbolizes purity. The Virgin’s blue mantle alludes to the sky, and the red color evokes her love. The apples could be a sign of Original Sin and the grapes that the Virgin and the Child take into their hands symbolize the Eucharist and the sacrifice of Christ our Redeemer.
