Vintage Framed Botticelli Madonna Print

Vintage Framed Botticelli Madonna Print

$220.00

This is a lovely vintage print of the famous 1487 painting “Madonna of the Pomegranate” by Sandro Botticelli. The scene shows the Blessed Virgin Mary holding the Child Jesus in her lap. Our Lady is surrounded by angels dressed in contemporary styles, and several symbols of the faith are depicted in the scene: roses representing the Madonna, lilies for purity, and books representing scripture.

The Madonna and Christ are both holding a large opened pomegranate in their hands. The pomegranate is a symbol of the resurrection and the hope of eternal life. The red juice represents Our Lord’s blood and suffering, and the seeds bursting from the fruit represent His resurrection. Because of the abundance of seeds contained in each fruit, the pomegranate can also represent the unity of the Church, and the seeds her many believers.

The frame is hexagonal with gesso texturing and a decorative cross.

 

Condition: The gesso detailing on the frame has cracked with age. Please see pictures.
