    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.


  2. 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!

  3. 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!).
