This artwork mosaic is for all seasons.  While synonymous with Christmas, the Madonna and Child-Duccio board is an equally beautiful reminder of faith all year long.

This is the first mosaic board I created of just the Madonna and Child, and I realized early on that it would be quite beautiful.  The colors are rich and deep in these images, and it shows a great variety of ways Mary and Jesus have been depicted by different artists over a span of several hundred years.  

Because this theme was so often a featured altarpiece within early churches, many of the works have extra gold and additional embellishment around the pieces.  Consequently, we see a variety of shapes that seem to serve as ‘frames within a frame’ in this grouping.  I like how the different shapes of frames seem to lift individual images off the board as the eyes rest upon different paintings.

Perhaps because three of my own children were born during the Advent and Christmas season, I have always been especially intrigued with Mary as a mother.  The spiritual aspects of her call were significant, and her unique part in God’s divine plan is told to us clearly in Scripture.  It was revealed to Mary that the child she bore was the prophesied Messiah, yet until His active ministry was to begin, Mary had a boy to raise and raise well.  I have spent much time in thought about this young mother performing the demanding, important, and significant work of rearing an infant to adulthood that all mothers before her and those after her have done.

Whether you bring Madonna and Child-Duccio out for Christmas only, or hang it as a reminder of God’s work for, through, and about his people all year long, it reminds of Faith, Hope, and Love.
