Ampleforth Madonna - Wood Finish

£60.00
Information

THe Lady Statue in the Abbey's Lady Chapel is well-known and much-loved. The original is 1 metre, just over 3 feet, high, 13th Century German, carved in wood. Mary is crowned and carries a lily sceptre in her right hand. She tilts slightly to one side to balance the weight of the child on her hip, and half smiles at him. Jesus holds on to his crib as if were a toy, though it symbolises his lordship over creation. It is the combination of the theological statement of what is recognisably human that attracts the viewer and invites prayer.
Customcast, who also make The Throne of Grace for us also created this in a strong resin, it stands 30cm (12") high and weighs over 2 Kg (about 5lb).
