    1. This 19th century image by French artist William Bouguereau presents a most beautiful, pure and deeply spiritual painting of Our Lady holding the Infant Jesus with a baby lamb.
      Adolphe-William Bouguereau was a famous portrait artist born in La Rochelle, France on November 30, 1825. He followed the classical style of 16th century painters such as Raphael. Bouguereau painted for a number of Catholic Churches throughout the late 1800’s. He died in 1905.

      It looks like the Sisters of Carmel are also selling the framed print: http://www.sistersofcarmel.com/religious-christmas-gifts.php

      Hope that helps! I agree it’s a beautiful painting.

    1. Hmmm. Your closest Catholic Gift shop will probably have it. But it would also work well to just print this out on a good color printer (Wal Mart or Kinkos if yours isn’t good enough) and put it in a frame from the thrift shop.

      1. I’m going to carve a design around the border of an inch thickness of oak and polyurethane this pic with carved caption about Mary to include a carving surrounding the caption of twelve gold stars; HEAVEN FEELS AWE OF GOD, ANGELS TREMBLE AT HIM,
        THE CREATURE SUSTAINS HIM NOT; NATURE SUFFICETH
        NOT; AND YET ONE MAIDEN SO TAKES, RECEIVES, ENTER-
        TAINS HIM, AS A GUEST WITHIN HER BREAST, THAT, FOR
        THE VERY HIRE OF HER HOME, AND AS THE PRICE OF HER
        WOMB, SHE ASKS, SHE OBTAINS PEACE FOR THE EARTH,
        GLORY FOR THE HEAVENS, SALVATION FOR THE LOST, LIFE
        FOR THE DEAD, A HEAVENLY PARENTAGE FOR THE EARTHLY,
        THE UNION OF GOD HIMSELF WITH HUMAN FLESH.
        -SAINT PETER CHRYSOLOGUS, BISHOP OF RAVENNA
