Beauty in Reverence

img_8783

This particular piece is one that I found hanging on a wall at an antique store many years ago. Something about her eyes reminded me of my Aunt Mary. Her eyes have a familiar gaze of love and passion. The lady looks as though she may be getting ready to go to Mass. She has her rosary, and her fan at the ready to cool her if it gets too hot in the church. She has her cloak or head cover, which is more likely for reverence and not to keep warm. Her dress is too casual to be a nun, as she doesn’t show much modesty with her plunging neck line. Nevertheless, she is beautiful. the artist is unknown.
