Christ and His Mother

Henry Ossawa Tanner's Annunciation is quite well known but I've never seen this one which shows Mary and her Divine Son a few years later.

I love it! So often you hear people talk about Mary as being a poor, illiterate literal Jewish girl. But tradition tells us she was raised in the temple and I love this picture of her obviously home schooling her Son. Beautiful!
