Our Lady of Lourdes
Renowned as a place of both spiritual and physical healing, The Our Lady of Lourdes shrine in Lourdes, France is the most visited Marian shrine in the world. Mother Mary, in a white gown with a blush sash and yellow roses, stands above St. Bernadette in the grotto and is easily the most recognized image of this holy place. This mixed media collage was divinely inspired after my mother sent me the original prayer card during a time of personal turmoil. Like many who are suffering, I turned to this celestial image and meditated on my life. I was struck with comfort that can only come from above and when it resurfaced many years later, hidden between the pages of a frayed book, I knew it needed to be elevated through my art.
This one of a kind mixed media collage features the following specifications:
- Measurements: 3.75 x 4.75
- Weight: 3.7 oz
Quote: Oh Holy Virgin, in the midst of your days of glory, do not forget the sorrows of this earth. We are loved, healed, supported and forgiven, but never forgotten.
This framed collage was lovingly crafted with divine inspiration using acid-free glue, a prayer card, specialty glitter and metallic papers and appliques on watercolor paper. As an original creation, it is signed and dated by me, the artist, and will be sent to you in the hope that it will offer you the same comfort and grace it offered me during the act of creation.
