Product Description & Reviews

I based the piece loosely on Michel Erhart's Ravensburg Madonna of Mercy. I carved the piece and cast it in modified gypsum with bronze powder. The piece can stand or hang (there's a hook on the back). It can go outside. The piece comes boxed and with a card stating the following: "Beginning in the thirteenth century the image of the Madonna of Mercy became widespread in Europe. The images were based on a medieval law often referred to as 'the protection of the mantle.' Essentially, the law stated that women of high rank could grant refuge to those being persecuted. The best-known depiction of the image is Michel Erhart's Ravensburg Madonna of Mercy (1480-90), where Mary shelters a rag-tag group of people. Working within the medieval tradition of carving statues of the Madonna of Mercy, my image is simpler than Erhart's: it depicts only three children with Mary. The theme, though, is the same: Mary, the patron of mothers, is, like all good mothers, a source of constancy to her children. The love flows both ways, but the mother is the one who, no matter what grief her children may bring to her, stays steadfast in her love, offering her children, metaphorically at least, the protection of the mantle. I hand carved my version of the image in clay and cast each piece myself in cast stone. The pieces are then hand painted by Karen Schlau." Dimensions: 7 (h) x 3 (w) x 1.75 inches (d).
