Mother of God

    This is a detail image of the Madonna from Leonardo Da Vinci’s painting, Virgin of the Rocks.

    Only the Madonna’s face and right shoulder are visible in this image.

    The Madonna has white skin and shoulder-length, curly brown hair. She wears a grayish-blue cloak, clasped at her chest by a black jewel brooch. 

    The Virgin inclines her head to her right side. There is a spherical halo above her head.

    The background of the image is black.
