The Madonna and Child has been a common topic of art throughout centuries; mostly in the Middle Ages and the Renaissance time periods. Painting of the Madonna and Child has been dated back to before the sixth century and has continued to appear till the present day.

The reason is simple: there’s no love as pure, as beautiful, as divine and human as the one painted over and over in all those images.

I just wanted to be part of that history with this portrait. Looking back to the byzantine excellent technics in a modern view of the Madonna as a woman that just wants to be a mother. The simplicity of true love is beyond time.
