Virgin of the Immaculate Conception

This seventeenth-century artwork depicts the Blessed Mother, as the Immaculate Conception, wearing a white dress, symbolizing her virginity, and a blue cloak, symbolizing her maternity, and crowned with stars. The Virgin crushes a serpent, representing the devil. A crescent moon is also at her feet. Cherubs surround Mary in the clouds, one of them holding up a mirror to reflect her beauty.
