Product DescriptionThis figure by William-Adolphe Bouguereau is one of the most beautiful and popular statues found of Mary and Jesus. Titled L'Innocence, from the Veronese Collection, the statue features Mary holding Jesus in one arm and a little lamb in the other. The statue is made of a resin and alabaster mix and lightly hand painted in muted colors which add to the serene and peaceful look of the statue. It stands 11-3/4 inches tall so be displayed just about anywhere that you would choose to do so.
The lamb held by Mary portrays innocence and refers to the innocence found in children such as the baby Jesus. It also refers to a title often given to Jesus as Lamb of God. The statue gives us the quiet beauty and serenity of Mary beautifully rendered through the detailing and the muted colors. The detailing is exquisite from the sleeping face of the baby to the wool of the lamb to the flow of the robes. Notice the feet of Jesus and the detailing on the lamb in particular. The statue also celebrates the love of a mother for her child as seen in the tender look on the face of Mary as she gently cradles both Jesus and the lamb. The statue would be a lovely gift to give a new mother.
