A magnificent crucifixion painting

There isn't a whole lot of good modern Catholic art out there so I am delighted to discover Bradi Barth , a lovely Swiss born artist who passed away in 2007. Her crucifixion painting does exactly what religious art is supposed to: teach and inspire contemplation. In one painting we see the result of Adam's fall, the hope given by God with the Immaculate Conception and Our Lord the Fruit of the Woman's womb hanging on the cross made from the Tree of Life saving us. And we see Our Lady crush the head of the serpent.

I love her work. Have you seen her Visitation where you see the two babies? I'd love to have a complete set of the mysteries of the rosary!
