Mother of Sorrows

Artist, Julien Lasbleiz works on movies in his day job and created this image of Our Lady based on looking at the Shroud of Turin. I didn't like it at first but the more I look at it, the more it moves me. We have a lot of Middle Eastern immigrants in Northern Virginia.  I've seen this face a thousand times on the bus, the train and walking the streets.

I'll be reposting this ne, too. I recognized her, but couldn't place the image until you mentioned the Shroud.

The artist did an incredible job using that as a guide to draw the parallel.

How I love Our Lady... how she loved Him.
