The subject of the Madonna & the Child Jesus has always been a favorite subject of mine. Motherhood has many different aspects, and one of them is an inner sadness in watching one's child grow up and apart, not really needing the Mother to hover over him as she did when he (or she) was small and helpless. I believe the Virgin Mary, in knowing that her Child was special, that he was destined for great things, may have felt this inner sorrow with a sharp awareness, and it is what comes through here. The baby has soft red hair, because I had remembered reading in an ancient text somewhere that Jesus was sometimes portrayed with reddish hair, which would have certainly made him stand out among the dark-haired Jews of Palestine, so I kept that idea here. This piece was the original beginning of the Sacred Images series begun in Beijing, China in 2003, and I offer it here for your enjoyment.
