Maria SS. del Sangue
Madonna del SangueThe altar of the Madonna of the Blood in Re, Val Vigezzo, Italy. According to legend the picture of Mary bled for twenty days in 1494 after a young boy flung a coin at it.
Mater DolorosaThis is an image I created for Lent last year.It was inspired by a German statue from the 14th century known as the Rottgen pietà, a very graphic image of Mary holding Jesus’ body after the crucifixion.
