Sublime beauty

This is just such a beautiful work of art: Botticelli’s Madonna of the Magnificat from c 1481. The work portrays the Virgin Mary crowned by two angels. The Child Jesus is keeping in a hand the pomegranate, symbol of the Resurrection. The painting is said to portray the family of Piero de’ Medici, Lord of Florence from 1464.

About Michaela

I am a wanderer and a wonderer, like you are. I love our journey and to walk in the company of friends – to learn, experience, share, laugh, cry and above all I simply love this marvelous, magical, mysterious life. I have no plan (cannot believe I am saying this) and my only intention is to be truthful to myself and others.
