A fascinating twist on a traditional religious icon painting. In its own unique style, echoing the features of fauvism, this powerful yet gentle piece seems to depict the Virgin Mary with a cross standing in the far distance. Her piercing yet pensive eyes seem to have a serene look of acceptance. Light is used skilfully in this work to emphasize the shining star and the two halos, glowing over the tops of the hills and illuminating the land.
