Something to conteplate

This painting is incredible. It shows a young Mary at the time of the Annunciation and Mary in her old age with Our Lord in the middle. Girlhood Mary learning that her Son would be king and Elder Mary knowing that her Son was a suffering king with thorns for a crown, a reed for a scepter, and mocking red cloak for a His rainment. The entire painting is a huge altar piece that also shows Pilate and the vicious crowd. It belongs to Our Lady of Aalborg in Denmark and was on display in an exhibit in Utah last year.
