Durer's Madonna and Child: Day 9
Albrecht Durer's body of work is extensive (you can view more of his body of work at this site). He created quite the handful of Madonna and child images. "His vast body of work includes altarpieces, religious works, numerous portraits and self-portraits, and copper engravings." (Wikipedia).
Makes me wonder what he thought of Mary. Although, if I were to guess, it was that she was loving and nurturing. And, a human being radiant and full of grace. That is what I see conveyed in his images of Mary.
A tradition that has gone on for many years now-where a group of bloggers (and anyone is welcome to join) will post for the first 12 days of December images that represent the Mother of Jesus. It ends on the Feast day of Our Lady of Guadalupe.
Some will write amazing words of inspiration and prayer. Others tell a story. Often, the image alone conveys the message and that is enough.
Come see what others have shared over at Rebecca's page. Feel free to join in with us whether if it's for one day or all 12!
