A German copper engraving of St Bernard of Clairvaux before Mary.What I particularly like about this image is the direct communication between Mary and St Bernard: Mary says to him Salve Bernarde (Hail Bernard) to which Bernard replies Salve Regina (Hail Queen).St Bernard (1091-1153) had a great devotion for Mary and he is said to be responsible for adding the three final acclamations to the Salve Regina: O clemens, O pia, O dulcis Virgo Maria.
