Virgin Mary




Virgin Mary, I like to know what the medium is and date but sorry I can't find any.


Virgin Mary is one of my biggest inspirations for my portraits. They are all about the strength, love and power of woman.
I realize they are a symbol of Catholicism, I see them more for their expression of humanity and for what it means to be a human.
