Madonna, Madonna, Madonna

I love the statues of Madonna and Child and I have a great collection of pictures from the Catalan National Art Museum (MNAC):

They range from around 1250 through 1600 AD and are made of polychrome wood.

This one is by Jeronimo Hernandez de Estrada from 1600:

Even non-Christians can’t pass these beautiful Madonnas without feeling the warmth of a mother’s tender embrace…

Merry Christmas Everybody!

  1. Thanks Michele for posting these very fine photos. I have been to the MNAC and was totally enthralled with the Romanesque collection. I did view several of these Madonna and Child wood statues which I recall were interesting, but your photos and presentation captured my interest far more than the real thing.
