    Hi Cru,

    Where was the original painting created, and were there any inscriptions included in the original painting?

    We don't tell our children fairy tales so that they will know that monsters exist.
    They already know monsters exist.

      Of course it is, but what is your understanding as to why the Holy See emphasized her particularly after and in response to the Reformation, and ever since?

          Tradition has it that St Luke painted (or "wrote") the first icon, the Virgin Mary.
          Eastern Orthodox-Western Rite

          I believe, O Lord, and I confess that Thou art truly the Christ, the Son of the Living God, Who didst come into the world to save sinners, of whom I am chief.

              Maybe we can get the lady that restored this image of Jesus to restore that image of Mary:

                He was a Jew... he would have never done such a thing.

                The guy on the left in that image looks like he is scolding the woman for breast feeding in public.

                That image is also an example of how people read things into pictures that were never intended.

                  I can't even tell from the picture if the person holding the baby is a man or a woman.

                  Did Mary have a mustache and goatee?

                      Yep, Mary would never have passed a Jewish virginity test after giving birth to Jesus... and she would have been condemned under the Old Covenant if she never attempted to procreate with her husband afterwards.

                          Given that the icon in the OP was painted in the mid 2nd-century, your question about something that would not occur for another fourteen-hundred years seems a bit out of place.
