Nursing Mother of God



I got this one in Wisconsin on one of my Ladies Outings I take with my mom and sisters-in-law. I was nursing a baby at the time, and this holds special meaning for me. I don't know how old it is, but it is signed on the back. It is painted on a thin board. Click for a larger view.

This is very similar to the icon my husband bought for me in Bulgaria (posted in my sidebar). Love it.

My goodness, the holy Mother is feeding the Holy Infant pizza...when in Rome. ;-)

But seriously, it's a lovely icon.

I love the painting technique but I gotta say that it looks like Mary is super crabby and torked that Jesus is needing another feeding. Maybe she has mastitis or something?
