There are many ways in which Maria as Holy Mother makes her appearances. Some are painted, others are sculpted and some are a combination of both. There are also different types of clothing possible, but I prefer the basic version as you can see on the drawing above. It's a sculpted and handpainted version, glued on a piece of painted wood. Probably made in China.
This one was a birthday gift by close friends of ours, one out of a set of three: Maria, Joseph and the happy couple with the Holy Child. These three pieces also found their way to our toilet's Wall of Fame and Other Religious Artifacts. According to some people it's becoming a real must-see when visiting our house.
