I was drawn to this image when I first started creating this series of divine feminine art. For me, it holds an essence of the circle of motherhood and the continuing dance between mother and child. This icon is known as the Cambrai Madonna and dates from the 13th century. Believed to have originated in Tuscany, Italy and influenced a wide range of paintings. Here she floats on clouds of encaustic pigment wax and is surrounded by a handmade patina copper frame.
