The position of Mary and the church in the background really works for this shot, Jack.

Such gentleness to be captured in stone.

To see statues of Mary always gives a feeling of sweetness and peace, it's good for the heart, wether you're believer or not.

If you look up "serenity" in the dictionary, this photo should be there.

She has been depicted so many ways but this pose seems to be the modern standard of Catholic iconography. I wonder what its origins are.

A lovely shot. She might enjoy my angel today I think.
