HOLY MARY!! (210/365 DAYS, 4.0)

Since we imported the Christian faith to this continent centuries ago, 
we have tons of examples of the effigy of the Virgin Mary. 
Here are just a few, 
presented chronologically.


"Virgin and Child [Lorraine, France, early 3rd of the 14th century]"


"Virgin and Child [Giovanni del Biondo, 1380]"


"Virgin and Child [Master of the Castello Nativity, 1460]"


"Virgin and Child with St Michael and St Blaise [Neri di Bicci, 1475]"


"Annunciation [Master of Liesborn, 15th century]"


"The Education of the Virgin [Central Germany, 2nd quater of the 16th century]" 


"Virgin Mary [Attributed to Joseph Pepin, 1811]" 

This last piece looked a bit quaint to my taste, 
so I modified it a little... 
No harm in having a little fun, 
is there?!?
