You will find this lovely shrine, dedicated to the glassblowers, when you visit the island of Murano.

It’s so serene and simple, Sartenada.
I am so plebeian! I was just thinking how beautiful and graceful the vase was and wondering if a version was still being made today.
🙂 I’d say you could have one made like that, Elizabeth.
I don’t usually rate most modern versions of sacred icons — sickly pious, often lacking artistic merit or skill and missing the charm that some naive art has (ooh, I’m overly picky, aren’t I?) but there is a delicacy and sensitivity to the Madonna’s gaze that I find quite appealing.z Thanks for drawing attention to this, Yvonne!

I think I’ll be going back to look at her more closely, calm one.
I love these shrines with modern-ish art in them – I too wonder if this artist is still alive (and wonder what was in this shrine before this!).
It’s surely non-traditional, Annie. Maybe I can find someone to ask about the artist, on the next visit.
Hi, Andrew. It looks fairly recent, I wonder if the artist is still alive?
I remember seeing this. Very pretty indeed.
