Okay, so I love this statue of Mary. I found it on Ebay a while back and could not resist.
The funny thing is, this is not at ALL how I picture Mary. Lately, I’ve been imagining her as a comfortable motherly figure with laugh lines … not as a glamour girl with lipstick and Jean Harlow eyebrows.
But I love it anyhow. Maybe it’s because I gravitate towards things that look a little retro, or because it’s the kind of Mary that I imagine my grandmother would have had on her dresser. And this Mary never fails to make me think of springtime and flowers. I’m always happy when my garden provides me with a few blooms to put by her.
So how do YOU picture Mary? Young, old, blonde, brunette, always dressed in blue? … or maybe none of the above?
