Virgin of the Immaculate Conception – Zurbaran


     F. Zurbaran made this artwork showing Our Lady as the Immaculate Conception. The Virgin Mary, with a halo of stars, stands with folded hands atop a crescent moon in the sky. Symbols of Mary surround her in the clouds. Beneath the Virgin, is the City of Jerusalem, a palm tree, and a ship upon a sea.
