    This is a charming portrait of the Blessed Virgin Mary as a child, twentieth-century American artist, Charles Bosseron Chambers.

    In the painting, Mary is portrayed as a girl of about five years of age.

    She has medium skin, brown eyes, pink cheeks, and shoulder-length, light brown curls. Mary looks straight ahead, with her lips slightly parted and her eyebrows raised in  a partially concerned expression. Mary wears a pale blue dress with long sleeves. Her collar, which is lined with a golden border, is round, with a small v-shape in its center.

    The portrait’s background is brown. There is a light brown outline of a halo around Mary’s head.
