Madonna of the Rosary – Lotto


     The Blessed Virgin Mary sits, holding the Christ Child, in front of a rose bush, which is hung with depictions of each mystery of the Rosary. Our Lady hands a rosary to St. Dominic. Christ extends His hands to a bishop. Other saints kneel, looking towards the Blessed Mother and her Son. Cherubs scatter rose petals, symbolizing graces which come through recitation of the Rosary.
