Young Christian Martyr – Delaroche

A pale young woman, wearing a white dress, drowns with tied hands for her Faith. A bright halo floats above the martyr's head. In the darkness behind the woman, two dark figures, possibly the martyr's parents, stand embracing each other on a dark cliff. A few orange gleams of sunlight show in the sky. Artwork by nineteenth-century artist, P. Delaroche
