Symbols of the Virgin Mary…

… Taking this month’s theme of the rosary in a direction away from portraits, today’s Rosary in Fine Art example is a still life by Dirck de Bray c. 1672.

This particular still life incorporates symbolism associated with the Blessed Virgin Mary: the rose, a rosary, rosemary, the thurible, and the crown.
