Our Art Nouveau Madonna medallion is recast from the vintage original dating from approximately 1906. The image of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin was hand carved based upon the painting by Spanish artist Bartolome Esteban Murillo (1618 - 1682). The image is captivating and Her face on the medallion is exquisite and beautiful. Her halo is made of 12 Stars. In keeping with her graceful presence, a Fleur de Lis representing the Trinity adorns the toggle so that if you choose to wear the necklace double wrapped you may. In recasting historic Holy Medals I feel it preserves pieces of the past, while honoring and sharing a devotion to the Holy Ones. It's a calling and a mission.
This beautiful piece is graceful and not bulky. The 8mm "Moonglow" Silver Freshwater Pearls are hand-linked with prayerful intention for the wearer. It is absolutely beautiful all by itself or layered with our other designs. A Fleur de Lis representing the Trinity accents the clasp and serves as a connector.
